We have begun learning about Rosh Hashanah, and are making special crafts to adorn the yom tov table. We got the idea for this project from www.challahcrumbs.com, a website where you can find great ideas, crafts, and fantastic kid-related activities. We expanded on the apple wine topper idea by also making a pomegranate wine topper.
First take a toilet paper roll and cover it with red construction paper. Then cut 5 strips of red construction paper approximately 8 inches long. Tape either side of the red strips to the toilet paper roll making your 3 dimensional apple. Trace a stem and leaf out of green construction paper, cut it and tape it to the top of the apple. You can do the same steps for a pomegranate. For the pomegranate, trace and cut out a crown to tape on top. Now you have beautiful wine covers to adorn your Rosh Hashanah table!
