Best of Rosh Hashanah Holiday Cooking and Art Craft Ideas for Kids & Kid-Like Adults


Celebrations & Crafts

I love holidays, especially Rosh Hashanah, the first Jewish celebration and observance of fall this year because it begins starting at sundown tonight running through September 29 to 30. Certainly, cooking and crafting together -- no matter what the holiday -- is a really fun way to bond family parents and children of every age: toddlers school age students teens and even kids home from college. It is also the perfect way to create memories that will last a life time.  Spend some quality time together and enjoy your kids with the ideas with links below to inspire you, includes cooking and crafting ideas plus downloadable holiday theme color pages.

Martha Stewart is the Queen of Holiday Crafts in my book. And this Apple Honey Dish from her 2010 vault of uber creative ideas is made from a real apple is my all-time fave Rosh Hashanah idea for our family table this year. In fact, one of my triplets made the apple dish pictured above this afternoon.

Another great idea is a DIY stuffed toy challah from Akhlah that is not made with real flour that mom or even older children can make with proper supervision and motor skills. All you need is 3 panty hose legs and some tissue paper for stuffing and you are ready to braid, then coil the "legs" into a round loaf of faux challah bread.

From Chabad the worldwide Jewish outreach organization comes a great collection of free downloadable coloring pages to celebrate the holiday.

Lastly, since I'm a prize-winning cooking with pomegranate fan, here is a beautiful and really easy and simple craft that you'll want to use from year to year: A Pomegranate Napkin Ring designed by Joy of Kosher.
