Yesterday at Crafting A Future, my lively group of boys ages 7-10 had a great time making this four cups Passover wall hanging craft, and I have to say, the results really are adorable! I was inspired by the dancing wine goblets I made some years ago, but needed a way to make them into a project that could be easily taken home by the kids and hung on the wall. Fortunately a strip of recycled cereal box cardboard affixed to the back of the paper "doll" chain did the trick!
And when I realzed that scalloped circles actually resemble the round hand made matza that most of us eat, or at least for the seder, the project took on another dimension.
These funny guys are wearing yarmulkes, and look like sculptures, don't they?
Some of the older boys decided to make their four cups also represent the four sons that are written about in the Passover seder, a great idea!
- colored paper
- recycled cardboard
- a scalloped circle punch (optional)
- hole punch
Teach kids how to fold a letter or A4 piece of colored paper into four, accordian wise, and then teach them how to draw a simple wine glass/goblet. Draw arms such that the hands reach the folds, and cut out the glass. Glue the top pf the set of four glasses to a piece of cardboard to provide them with a stable base. Add details to the cups with markers and cut paper, attach scalloped circles to the bottom of the cups if desired. Punch holes in strip of cardboard and hang with a ribbon. Hang and enjoy!
