As with every party revolving around Hanukkah, Menorah and candles are a vital part of the celebration. By beginning the party with candle-lighting, you will be able to set the proper atmosphere for the event. Dreidels are also commonly used as party games for Hanukkah. This game is a spinning contest where a four sided top is spun and depending on which way it lands, the spinner will gain or loose their gambling chips. The chips can be a variety of different things so think of the kids when deciding. Chocolate covered raisins seem to be a popular choice because they serve a dual purpose, treat and game piece. Consolation prizes also help to soothe the appetite of the non-winner.

It is important to keep in mind the spirit behind Hanukkah. Oil and cheese embrace an important history to Hanukkah through stories of their heroes so if there seems to be a way to integrate these items into the atmosphere it would be widely accepted. Food is a festive and important part to any holiday, no matter what background you come from. An easy source of entertainment is to allow the children to get involved in the festivities of cooking. This can lead to a joyous time had by all, memorable and remarkable for each participant. Providing song sheets so everyone can join in a joyful praising chorus will bring delight into the evening as well. Along with gathering a few praise songs to recite, it may be beneficial to have the children choose a few words from the Torah for reflection to add a nice respectable aspect to the event. Games of this nature prove to be stimulating in terms of interpretations and conversations.

No matter what games you choose, an important part of Hanukkah is to rejoice, love and share. Keeping the goal of the evening in mind and remaining flexible in reception of ideas will naturally lead all to a good time. Remaining relaxed and stress-free will allow your guest to enjoy themselves as much as you are.
