The Jewish Holiday Craft Book by Kathy Ross
These fun, easy-to-assemble crafts would be engaging for any child in
the 3-to-12 range. The text, though addressed to children, has the supervising
hand of an adult in mind. Over 50 projects are grouped under the different
Jewish holidays, and they range in difficulty from a Challah cover (basically,
two pieces of colored paper with some slits cut in them) to a Moses and
the Ten Commandments figurine for Shavuot (Feast of the Weeks, celebrating
the harvest season in Israel) that requires over a dozen items for assembly.
Other possibilities include a fearsome paper-bag Haman Shaker ("Give
Haman a good shaking this Purim--he deserves it!") and an amusing
Jonah and the Whale bath toy made from nothing but a plastic soda bottle
and a piece of plastic grocery bag.
