Adorable Lulav and Etrog Cookies and Sukkah Craft

How cute is this?

We made a basic sugar cookie recipe- divided it in half and added yellow food coloring to the one half and green to the other- just keep adding food coloring until you get a nice desired color.

We then took the green dough and made Lulavs with the hadas and aravos and the rings, then with the yellow dough made etrogs. We baked them and ate them in the Sukkah- the kids loved it. They loved mixing them, shaping them, watching them bake and then eating them!

Here the recipe we used, but you can use any sugar cookie recipe:
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • We just mixed it all together. The kids used their hands to 'knead' it into a solid ball, but you can also use a kitchen aid if need be. Half the fun is mixing it and getting all full of dough:)

I then gave each munchkin a piece of card stock with an outline of a Sukkah. I gave them glue, Popsicle sticks, stickers and they went outside and collected leaves. Then they made their own Sukkah designs and we hung them up in our Sukkah for all to see, check out their creations!

Enjoy the holiday!
