Tortilla Torah, by 3rd grader
I wrote about kid-created instant edible Torah Scrolls years ago, back when I could get away with a lot more sugar in the classroom. And, I’ve already talked about the holiday and why an edible Torah Scroll can be a good enrichment activity for Simchat Torah. When kids explore a real sefer Torah as model and special guest, they understand what they are re-creating and why.

Edible Pretzel Basket for Purim
Of course the contents of a Purim Mishloach Manot basket are edible. But what if the actual basket was, too?
A Homeshuling post about kid-crafted Mishloach Manot containers that are eco-friendly, cheap and reasonably attractive utterly derailed my work schedule today. I stopped everything to try the idea I posted as a suggestion, to make an edible basket from pretzel dough. Continue reading
