Haunakkah is a fun Jewish holiday that has so many fun elements to it. You can read about the history about Hanukkah in The Story of Hanukkah and Maccabee!: The Story of Hanukkah.

The Story of Hanukkah is also talks about the symbols of Hanukkah like the dreidel, the menorah, the present, latkes, sufganiyot, and candles.

Those are also the movements on the dice. This is a fun way to remember the part of Hanukkah with Gross Motor.

How to use the Hanukkah Gross Motor Dice Inserts

I love using the cube dice for our rolling dice. They are easy to use and switch out!

You start by cutting out all the cube dice inserts.

You can see how easy it is to put the inserts in. Kids can switch them out. Plus with the cude dice, you can mix up all the gross motor dice sets.

How to use the Hanukkah Gross Motor Dice

I always like to start out by having them review the movements before adding the dice part. This way I can make sure they are doing safe movements or they learn to move out of the way when doing them close together.

Dreidel: You spin around like a dreidel.

Menorah: You put the candles in the menorah. You can have them do the movements to match the candles for the day or have them put in the candles for each movement.

Present: You unwrap the present with big movements to pull the wrapping paper off. They can be super creative with this.

Latkes: You are going to cook like a latke in the oil. You can have them lay down and wiggle and shake or you can have them stand and so little small two-foot hops.

Sufganiyot: You pretend to eat the Sujganiyot (jelly doughnut). We did big movements that started with arms out to the side and alternated arms coming to the mouth.

Candles: You hold your arms over your head and have your arms move like the flame on the candle.

After you know the movements add in the speed dice and the number dice. This can make the movements sill but loads of fun to do. You can get the number dice insets here.
