Port-a-Menorah Craft Book is Perfect Family Hanukkah Fun

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you're spending the day with your family eating favorite foods and enjoying one another's company. I'm in Indiana helping myself to too many helpings of mashed potatoes with my nephews. As another Thanksgiving comes and goes, the end of 2012 is in sight. Can you believe it?

December is a busy month filled with holidays. For our readers who celebrate Hanukkah, I've found a fun new paper crafting product to check out. Chronicle Books recently released Port-a-Menorah, a punch-out menorah your children can craft during Hanukkah. Once you assemble the die-cut base, the kids can punch out a candle – there are, of course, nine in all – each day and add it to the menorah. On top of all of that, this mailable gift comes equipped with two dreidels to put together and start spinning.

The neat, simple item boasts being a non-fire hazard – and, true, it makes a safer alternative to open flames, especially for toddlers and small kids. But I like the fact that this paper craft is fantastic to send to family members who live far away. It actually comes with a mail-ready envelope that's 12-by-8-inches, with ample space to cushion this book on its way to loved ones.
The Port-a-Menorah retails for $12.95, making it an affordable – and reusable – fun little holiday touch, perfect for celebrating the Festival of Lights for years to come. In 2012, Hanukkah begins the evening of Saturday, Dec. 8 and goes to the evening of Sunday, Dec. 16.
We're on the hunt for favorite Hanukkah crafting projects. Make sure to share your favorites with us so we can share them with others!
