Joyful Jewish

Rosh Hashanah collage

Posted on: 17 September, 2011

Collage is always fun for young children, and it’s easy to incorporate the key elements of Rosh Hashanah – apples, honey, shofar, round challah and “L’Shanah Tovah”.

I used:
– cardboard – I used a plate to trace circles on some old cardboard folders I was recycling.
– pictures – find them on the internet or draw your own, cut shapes from coloured paper
– scratch and sniff stickers – who knew they came in both apple and honey scents?  (Mind you if my honey smelled like those stickers I don’t think I’d be eating it!)
– textas for additional decoration

Cut out your pictures and glue them on, then add some decoration (if you want to) and hey presto, a colourful new year decoration for your fridge or wall.

If you’re short of time, you are welcome to print off my compilation of pictures gleaned from the internet: Rosh hashanah collage pictures

Last year I used the same pictures and we made cards to give to grandparents.
