Hanukkah activity printables

 

 
Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel
I made it out of clay
and when it’s dry and ready
My dreidel I shall play

 

***

Sung to: "I've been working on the railroad"

I am lighting all the candles
On this Hanukkah night.
I am Lighting all the candles
To see them shining bright.
Flicker, flickers little candles,
Fill me with your glow.
Now the time has come to count them,
Ready, set and go
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8.

***

 

Five little latkes were sizzling in the pan (wiggle 5 fingers)
One jumped out, said catch me if you can!
And it jumped and it ran all around the kitchen floor,
When I turned around it ran right out the door!
Now, there are 4 little latkes.
3, 2, 1...

*** 

(Tune:When Johnny Comes Marching Home)
The latkes are frying in the pan, hurrah, hurrah!
The latkes are frying in the pan, hurrah, hurrah!
And when they have cooked up nice and brown,
We'll take them out and sit right down
And we'll eat those yummy latkes this Hannukkah night!

*** 

(Tune: Twinkle, Twinkle)
Twinkle, twinkle Hanukkah lights,
Shining brightly for 8 nights,
See the dreidel spin around,
Eat some latke crisp and brown.
Twinkle, twinkle Hanukkah lights,
Shining brightly for 8 nights

*** 

On Hanukkah, we light the candles each and every night,
Starting with just one little candle, till all are shining bright.
Don't let the lights go out -
The story goes on and on...
A miracle to light the night, and keep our people strong.

Don't let the lights go out -
The story goes on and on...
A miracle to light the night, and keep our people strong.

Tune:Did you ever see a lassie

Oh, sing a song of Hanukkah,
Hanukkah, Hanukkah,
Sing a song of Hanukkah,
Happy holidays!
With presents and presents,
On every night, present.
Oh sing a song of Hanukkah,
Happy holidays!
 
***
 
Oh Hanukkah, oh Hanukkah, come light the menorah,
Let's have a party, we'll all dance the Hora,
Gather round the table, I'll give you a treat,
S'vivon (dreidels) to play with, and latkes to eat.
And while we are playing
The candles are burning bright,
One for each night, they shed a sweet light,
To  remind us of days long ago.
One for each night, they shed a sweet light,
To  remind us of days long ago.

Tune: Mary Had A Little Lamb

Hanukkah's a happy time,
Happy time, happy time.
Hanukkah's a happy time,
The festival of lights.

Tune: A tisket, a tasket
Menorah, menorah,
A Hanukkah menorah,
Light the lights and give a gift.
Oh Hanukkah menorah.
 
*** 
Tune: The Farmer in the Dell
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Light the candles one by one.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Spin the dreidel round and round,
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
*** 
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Eat the pancakes, yum, yum, yum.
Oh, Hanukkah is here!
 
***
 
Eight Little candles in a row,
Waiting to join the holiday glow.
We will light them one by one,
Until all eight have joined the fun,
Eight little candles burning bright,
Filling the world with holiday light.
 
***
 
Tune: I'm a little teapot
 
I'm a little dreidel made of clay
Spin me around when you want to play.
When I fall down if you don't win -
Just pick me up and spin again.
 
***
 
Tune:Three Blind Mice
Han-uk-kah, Han-uk-kah,
Hanukkah is here, Hanukkah is here!
Light eight candles in a row,
Light eight candles
 
And see them glow,
Light eight candles so we all know
That Hanukkah is here.
 
***
 
Tune:I'm a Little Teapot
I'm a little dreidel spinning round,
Turning, turning, and falling down.
Spinning faster, faster - slowing down,
Slower, slower - fall to the ground.
 
***
 
Hanukkah is coming very soon,
I know there'll be some presents, too.
Here is a menorah, light the lights,
There is one for every night.
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8 - Happy Hanukkah!
 
***
 
Tune: Flintstones theme
Latkes, eat some latkes,
They're a Hanukkah delicacy.
Eaten with some sour cream,
And with applesauce they're really fancy.
Fried in olive oil just right,
Reminds us of the miracle of light...
Latkes, eat some latkes,
They're a Hanukkah del-, a Hanukkah del,
A Hanukkah delicacy.
 
*** 
Tune: Sally the Camel
The Hanukkah menorah has one light,
One light for one night,
The Hanukkah menorah has one light,
So burn candle burn.
The Hanukkah menorah has two lights,
Two lights for two nights,
The Hanukkah menorah has two lights,
So burn candles burn. (sing up to eight)
 
***
 
(TUne: 6 Little Ducks) 
Nine little candles in my Hanukkah light, 
Burning brightly throughout the night. 
But one little candle is taller than the rest, 
We call that candle the Shamash. 
We light the candles one by one, 
We play with dreidels and have some fun. 
We dance the hora and tell the story, 
Of Judah Maccabbee and his glory.

***

Tune:Farmer in the Dell
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.
Light the candles, one by one.
Oh, Hanukkah is here.

Spin the dreidel, too.
Oh, spin the dreidel, too.
Spin the dreidel round and round,
For Hanukkah is here.

Eat some latkes next.
Eat some latkes next.
Eat some latkes -- yum, yum, yum --
For Hanukkah is here

***
 
How many candles,
How many candles
Do we light?
Do we light?
How many candles
Do we light
The [first] night?
The [first] night?

[One] little candle,
[One] little candle
We do light,
We do light.
[One] little candle
We do light
The [first] night,
The [first] night.

***

Tune: I'm a Little Teapot
I'm a little dreidel,
Can't you see?
Spin my handle,
Play with me.
Spin me, spin me,
Round and round.
Watch me, watch me
As I fall down.
Chant:
      Nun gets nothing.
      Gimmel takes all.
      Shin loses one.
      Hay claims half.

Spinning, spinnning, spinning,
Oh so fast!
Spinning, spinnning, spinning,
Slower now.
Spinning, oh so slowly,
I fall down.
Did you win?
Let's play again
