Happy Hanukkah to our Jewish friends! Even though my family celebrates Christmas, I always liked to introduce my children (and my students when I was a Montessori teacher) to other cultures and traditions as well. I often read at least one book about Hanukkah and had at least one Montessori-inspired Hanukkah activity available during Hanukkah.
Here are some wonderful Montessori-inspired Hanukkah printables and activities from around the blogosphere:
