Light-Up Menorah


What you get

Celebrate the Festival of Lights with some STEAM-themed family fun! Follow kid-friendly, step-by-step instructions to build and wire your very own light-up menorah. Decorate a set of custom candles using stencils and sandpaper, then pop a new candle into your menorah on each night of Hanukkah. When the colorful light from the LEDs shines through the sanded spots of your candles, refraction makes them glow de-light-fully bright! Ready to kick off the holiday season and get glowing?

• Each night of Hanukkah, add a new candle to your menorah. Candles light up when placed into the base!

• Includes 5 stencil designs so you can mix, match, and customize your candles.

• Features energy-efficient LEDs so your menorah can be reused again and again.

• Comes with an 18-page instruction booklet packed with Hanukkah facts, marvelous menorahs around the world, and a look into the science of refraction that makes your candles glow.

• Menorah dimensions (with candles): 11.2 x 4 x 8.7 inches (28.5 x 10.2 x 22.1 cm)



From the desk of the product designer:

Behind the design

The inspiration for the candles, which glow in colorful patterns when slotted into place, comes from the meaning of the Hanukkah menorah itself. The menorah symbolizes a miracle, so I wanted the candles to have a magical appearance too! —Adi

My kiddo LOVED putting this together. She was able to do it on her own without parental involvement and was very proud of the results. It looked gorgeous shining in our window, especially at night. We appreciate that Kiwicrate offered a kit for Hanukkah and hope that there will be more in the future.

Loved the whole idea / concept. The sanding of the candles was too tough for my 5 year old, but she got to do everything else. Great way to expose her to this part of her family.

This was such an impressive menorah! My son loved building it, had a blast creating each candles, and took great pride in turning it on each evening of Hanukkah. It will become part of our yearly celebration for sure!
