One of my kids was given a plaster of paris Hanukkah menorah craft kit, and I have to say, it was a great success with my ready-made craft kit starved kids! We found some plaster of paris that we had left over from another project to make a second menorah, and now I'm off to run some errands and buy some more plaster of paris as there are more little crafters that want to join in the fun, and the mold, while flimsy, will allow us to make at least one more!
And I realized that plaster of paris is such a fun technique for kids that we have yet to explore, so I may just buy a big bag! How about mixing some up, 2 parts plaster, to one part water, and pouring the plaster into cookies cutter molds? So many possibilities, and with four more nights of Hanukkah to enjoy, there's still plenty of time for some fun crafting activities!
