I'm going to show you how to make a very special Hanukkah menorah card, like these.

You'll need two pieces of card in different colours, a pencil, some scissors, some glue, some orange paint and some glitter. 

First take a piece of card and fold it in half. Put your hand on the card with your thumb on the folded edge, like this. Now draw around your hand. Ask a grown-up to cut out your hand shape. 

Now take another piece of card and stick on your cut-out hand shape. This is your menorah, a special candle for Hanukkah.

Now you can decorate your card. It's time to light the candles. Take some orange paint, and here's the fun bit. Dip your thumb into the paint. Light the middle candle, called the Shamash. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight. And that's how to make your Hanukkah menorah card. Happy Hanukkah!
