Noah’s Ark Menorahs: Hanukkah Fun for Kids

The story of Noah’s Ark is a classic. And while it’s not actually related to Hanukkah, Noah’s Ark Menorahs are adored by kids both young and old. I think our girls were about 2 and 4 years old when their grandfather sent them their very own Noah’s Ark Menorah. Their little faces lit up brighter than the burning candles. It has been a family favorite ever since that day.

I am not sure if it is the animals, the story, the idea of new beginnings, or the bright colors that makes Noah’s Ark menorahs so loved. When we got ours, it was unique, the only one I had ever seen. Now there are several to pick from.

My Favorite Noah’s Ark Menorah
