Today we make a colourful light for Hanukkah with Puk. Not traditional in colours but it gives a cheerful light and has dreidels on it, pretty for the Festival of Lights that is Hanukkah. Puk tries very hard to write Hebrew on the dreidels, just like on the real ones. Well done Puk!

If you don't celebrate Hanukkah, you can still make this light, for the winter or for Christmas perhaps, cut a snowman or Christmas tree instead of a dreidel.

How to make a colourful light
