Countdown Calendar
Make a Hanukkah calendar for your home.
Make a Hanukkah calendar for your home.

Because Hanukkah celebrations last eight days, a countdown calendar can help you remember how many days are left. A window calendar is a great way to help celebrate each day of Hanukkah.

What You'll Need:

Construction paper

Markers or colored pencils

Blunt scissors

Craft glue

Removable tape

Draw a menorah with candles to count the eight days of the holiday. Draw a flame above the center candle on the menorah.

To make the windows, cut eight small rectangles from construction paper. Fold each one in half, and glue one above each candle.

On the inside of the window, draw a candle flame. Close the window and secure it with a piece of removable tape.

Write the number for the countdown day on the front of the window, working right to left for the eight days of Hanukkah. Then open a window on each day of the celebration.
