Antiochus IV… Mattathias…Judah the Maccabee… Join the Maccabees (design a shield)… Syrian-Greek Attack (connect the dots)… Hanukkah Checkers (make a board and design checkers)… Dedication (color the Temple), Messenger Maze (find the way back to Jerusalem)… Eight Candles…Eight Lights… Latke Match… Rainbow of Jelly Doughnuts (color the flavors)…Nun, Gimel, Hay, Shin…A Great Miracle Happened There… Israeli Dreidel Hunt, Let’s Celebrate, Happy Hanukkah (make a card).

Hanukkah Coloring & Activity Book is a great gift for kids ages 5 to 10 (younger kids can stick to coloring) and complements “Hanukkah Card Games” (Go Fish, Crazy 8’s, Rummy) and Hanukkah: A Counting Book.
