Rosh HaShana, the Jewish New Year is in just a few days, so now is the time to dedicate a few hours to making wonderful cards to wish our family, friends and neighbors a wonderful new year, filled with blessings. And since the standard card may produce a bit of a yawn from the crafters in your home, why not do something special and make a Rosh HaShana basket of blessings? It is like a card, only a much more unique experience, since the pieces are removed from the basket in order to read them......and then of course the basket can be displayed as a decoration for the holiday!
I held a little crafting session with some 4th grade boys from the neighborhood, which was such a pleasure, and this little basket of blessings was the result of two crafting sessions that were roughly 1.5 hours each.
If you are looking for a craft that could easily be done in just one session, take a look at my Rosh HaShana Fish cards, which are one of the elements in the basket, but are great as a stand alone craft as well.
