Passover (or more correctly "Pesach" as it is said in hebrew) starts on Monday night, and the only way I have found time to post this little craft is that the husband and kids are out doing some grocery shopping for the holiday, meaning there is no one who thinks that there may be more important things to do right now........no one that is, who realizes how important you, dear readers, are to me! So I'll just quickly introduce you to this little idea that was born on account of going through a ton of paper towels as we try to wrap up the gigantic job of cleaning the house and most importantly the kitchen, for Pesach. Introducing recycled paper towel tube palm trees, the perfect craft for remembering what the holiday of Passover is really all about, namely our deliverance from slavery in the dessert!
- recycled paper towel tubes
- a pencil
Draw a palm tree on your tube, such that the fronds wrap around to the back and meet. Five fronds works nicely. Leave a ring at the base so the palm tree can stand up. Cut out the palm tree and than make small slits in the fronds. Don't make the trunks too narrow (mine are a bit too narrow) as they will collapse.
That is is, enjoy!
