Tu B’shevat Art Project – A day late (or so) and a dollar (or so) short

posted by Homeshuling

Thanks to the aptly named Creative Jewish Mom for this project. I made these trees with my Kindergarten class and they served as centerpieces for our Tu B’Shevat seder at school. Zoe’s is now proudly displayed on our windowsill. Here are the directions. She has her crafts helpfully indexed by holiday, and while a lot of her projects are too fussy for me (I’m definitely not a crafter), I’ve gotten more than one great idea for my kids at her site.

These look awesome! Keep working out any kinks, so that if my boys end up at LGA in a few more years, you’ll be the craftmaster!

You did a great job with those. I consider myself reasonably crafty and when I saw the directions in my search for something to do with Froggy I thought it was too fussy for us to complete.

I had access to a die cut machine to cut the trees – that made a big difference.

Teaching the Four Questions to young children
One of the greatest privileges of being a kindergarten teacher in a Jewish day school is having the opportunity to teach children to recite the four questions. Unlike almost anything else I teach them about Jewish ritual, this is "real work." The candles will get blessed, kiddush will be recited, an

Guess what's Kosher for Passover (this will change your life.)
I'm not exaggerating. The bane of my Passover existence has been pareve baking. I cook a lot more meat during the holiday than I do the rest of the year, which means a lot more pareve desserts. Which has, up until now, usually meant margarine made from disgusting ingredients such as cottonseed oi

Why I love the New American Haggadah (and it's not just because I got to have a martini with Nathan Englander.)
I'm not a haggadah junkie. I know many Jews whose shelves are overflowing with numerous versions of the Haggadah - from the traditional Maxwell House to the not-so-traditional Santa Cruz - and whose seders are an amalgam of commentaries, poems, and (alas) responsive readings, from these dog-eared, p

Best Hamentashen Ever, even better. And, a Purim opera.
This time of year, I'm always excited when I look at my google analytics and see that people have landed at my blog by searching for "hamentashen recipe". I love the idea of people all over the world making my great-grandmother's fabulous hamentashen, the same ones my mom made with me and that I mak
