With Chanukah party prep well underway, here are a few fun, inexpensive ideas to make your party a hit among the younger (and older) crowd.

Menorah Lite

With all the fried foods we consume over Chanukah, this refreshing salad bar will surely be welcome! A few weeks ago, my sister-in-law set up a magnificent salad bar at a sheva brachos. It was adorable to watch all the little kids take a bowl of lettuce, top it with their favorite toppings, and eat it! Making the veggies appealing is a great way to encourage healthy eating.

You will need:

  • mini square dishes
  • mini teardrop-shaped dishes
  • assorted toppings (diced colored peppers, shredded carrots, diced cucumbers, diced red onion, sliced scallions, diced avocado, croutons, candied nuts, etc.)
  • assorted salad dressings in small squeeze bottles
  • containers filled with lettuce

Place all salad toppings in the mini dishes and arrange in a menorah shape, as shown.

Put dressings and lettuce containers on the side.


Dreidel Tic-Tac-Toe

A cute, sweet, easy-to-assemble party favor-cum-activity.

You will need:

Place the tic-tac-toe board and two different-colored gummies (five of each) into a bag. Seal.
