Lailah Tov craft
Posted 9 June, 2013on:
We’re between festivals this month, so I decided to focus on some Hebrew words and phrases with the kids in my Shabbat Tot class. “Lailah tov” means “Good night”. For a craft activity, we’re making a collage quilt using squares of fabric. You could also do this activity with squares of paper if you didn’t have any spare fabric.
As a bonus, my fabric represents a number of Jewish festivals, either intentionally or via a process of creative reimagining!
This is the (very simple) backing picture prior to the fabric squares being glued on.
And this is what it looks like with the completed quilt.
Can you spot: matzah for Passover, apples for Rosh Hashanah, a candle holder for Hanukah? How about: party hats for Purim, flowers for Shavuot, a plague of insects and another of darkness for Passover, water that parted at the Red Sea, and a selection of stars of David? If you can suggest what my plain square of orange (ignoring the glue stain) might represent, please leave me a comment!
