Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year is in just one week, so while we're still recovering from a month away from home, the holiday isn't going to wait for us. It's time to get in a little crafting to build the anticipation for this wonderful two day holiday that this year is back to back with Shabbat, making it a three day holiday!
First things first, how about some Rosh HaShana cards? Traditionally this is the time of year to send cards to family and friends to wish them a happy healthy and sweet new year, and while I can't say that we actually plan enough ahead to send cards, my children do make them for friends, and I do on occasion get my act together to send some small treats with a greeting to neighbors. My daughter and a friend made these fun cards yesterday, and now I hope we'll have a moment to make some more!
- colorful card stock
- paper punches
- white glue
Punch shapes from colored paper and create designs on a blank card. Affix with glue, set aside to dry, and write your message inside. Simple enough right? And simple enough to make a bunch of small ones to accompany a sweet gift for friends and neighbors. Right?
