It’s hard to believe that Sukkot is already here. The holiday season continues with the start of Sukkot at sundown this evening. The kids have been talking about it at Hebrew School. JSL came home with an edible sukkah on Sunday.
Making one of these was something we talked about for a family celebration that I am helping to run. If you are interested in making them, it is very simple. You just need the following items:
- Paper plates for building – to construct your sukkah on
- Graham crackers – three squares make the sukkah walls
- Frosting – holds the pieces together
- Small pretzel rods – for the sukkah roof
- Candy pieces – kosher candies like mini chocolate chips, marshmallows, gum drops, fruit shapes, and licorice
Kids can make their sukkah while listening to Sukkot stories like The Vanishing Gourds: A Sukkot Mystery which I shared on Tuesday Tales in the past.
Now I am off to finish preparations for three fun Sukkot related art projects that I will be helping to coordinate over the weekend. I leave you with a fun Sukkot Style spoof from The Maccabeats.

Happy holiday to all that celebrate and please feel free to share how you traditionally decorate your sukkah.
