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!

Here is our Jewish Studies Weekly Routine

I did this for myself, to get a little clarity on what I need to do with the Little Tykes over the next few weeks.

This is just for Tishrei and not exactly a calendar, more of a schedule to follow. Note how there are no specific time slots- we kind of do things when the moments seem right (early in the morning, later afternoon)

Here it is:

and here is the PDF version

And these are some of the books, CD's and DVD's that we use in each subject that I highly recommend since my kids love love love them!

Alef Bet:


Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot and Simchat Torah:

As we do each activity or project I will post more details about each one.

Hope its helpful or inspiring! More details to follow~

High Holidays Prep

So this week is Rosh Chodesh Elul, giving us one month before the High Holidays-

Seems like enough time to prep the little tykes, no? But we all know how things go, so I pulled up a link from a blog I created last year with a few cute ideas to do with your munchkins...

We will do some of the same activities over the month, but will throw in some new ideas too (which will post as we go along), so enjoy what we did last year and if it looks like it will work for you and yours, then enjoy:)
