Rosh Hashanah crafts for kids

rh%20colouring.jpgRosh Hashanah is nearly here! The Jewish new year of 5768 begins this year at sunset on the 12th of September. Making holiday crafts can be a great way for kids to participate in and learn more about the occasion. Here are a few suggestions of activities you can enjoy with children.

Make a shofar (the traditional ram's horn blown on the holiday) out of card, and decorate it with glitter and ribbons.
• Make greeting cards for family and friends. Include traditional Rosh Hashanah imagery of apples and honey. Kids will enjoy making a stamp out of a real apple, and imprinting the image on cards.
• Make a honey dish.
• Make a play challah (the traditional bread) out of old stockings.
• Make a tzedaka box for saving coins to donate to a good cause.
• For young children, print out holiday themed colouring pages. They're available for free download in pdf format. Others can be found here and here.
