Yom Kippur Shofar Kids' Craft

The Jewish High Holidays are coming up. Recently I posted a Rosh Hashanah Tzedakah Box kids’ craft on Multicultural Kid Blogs. Today I’m bring you a Yom Kippur kids’ craft.

The Day of Atonement is a reflective time, when you take stock of the last year and ‘atone’ for you sins. The shofar, or ram’s horn, is part of the Yom Kippur temple/synagogue service (as it is for Rosh Hashanah as well). The shofar is blown at the conclusion of the service.

Your child can craft his own version of a shofar -- minus the real ram’s horn. Reuse an old cardboard paper towel tube (or cut a gift wrap tube down to size) as the base for this holiday project.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

·        1 cardboard tube – paper towel size

·        Scissors

·        Clear packing tape or masking tape

·        Tempera paint

·        A paintbrush

Here’s What to Do:

1.     Cut the tube all the way from the bottom to the top. This will be lengthwise.

2.     Wrap the tube into a thin cone shape. Your child should start at the bottom, folding on end of the cut cardboard over the other. The tube will naturally start forming a cone.

3.     Tape the bottom of the cardboard shofar. Your child can hold the tube together and you can tape or vice versa.

4.     Tape the top of the cone. Also add a strip of tape up the seam if needed.

5.     Paint the outside of the cone. As your child paints he’ll need to hold the cone upright. If not the paint will rub off on the table or whatever surface he is using. You can help out and hold the cardboard as he paints away. Another option is to paint one side/part and then weight the cardboard with a rock inside of the tube. When that part dries, turn the tube and repeat on the other side.

6.     Let the paint dry completely.

Use the Yom Kippur shofar for pretend play. Be careful and make sure that your child doesn’t accidentally eat the paint on the end of the shofar. Discuss not actually touching the cardboard to his mouth, and pretending to do so instead.
