I know, its only a few hours til Rosh Hashanah but maybe some of you have a few moments to spare to do a cute arts'n crafts project with your kids......
Well, if not for this year, there's always next year- enjoy!
Here are a few things we have done over the past few days/weeks:
We made a beehive using those little white cups as stamps then made a little bee out of pom poms, pipe cleaners and googly eyes:
A Shana Tova Card- this was awesome... using card board, stick on scotch tape in the shape of the Hebrew letters. Let the kids paint the entire paper how they wish and then remove the tape to have the letters revealed:
Just a little sorting activity in connection to the 6 days of creation- a basket of fish and birds, place the birds in the "sky" and the fish in the water:
The "sounds" of the Shofar (in no particular order):
Our Tashlich fish- although we used apple sponges to sponge print the scales, it came out really cool:
Just a simple apple collage- cut out a shape of an apple, have the kids cut up red and pink paper (or whatever color they want their apple to be) and glue on as a collage:
Honey Jars or Rosh Hashanah cards or any other fun ideas... take white paper, color with wax crayons all different colors- when the entire page is covered, take black crayon and color over the whole paper. Cut it out to any shape and use toothpicks to draw on the black to reveal the colors:
DIY Sand Art- this is fabulous! Take foam sheets with sticky backs. Use a pencil to draw a picture then using a small blade, cut out the picture through the paper. Gently remove each piece you have cut and sprinkle colored sand on it. It will stick to the sticky part of the foam. Ideas are endless, we have made so many of these- you can get the sticky foam from Walmart or any craft stores:
Simple counting activity using apples. This page is from My Rosh Hashanah Activity Pack for Toddlers
We made honey cakes with this awesome recipe- I printed and laminated it:
You can find some of the stuff we used here:
And last but not least, the classic honey dish and honey jar- dish made from tissue paper and plastic plates, honey jar is a painted baby food jar:
