Celebrate Sukkot With Fun Family Activities

Sukkot Gourds

Known as the “feast of booths,” Sukkot is a holiday with two meanings. One is to remember the 40 years the Jews wandered in the desert (living in huts-sukkahs). The other is a harvest celebration. Help your child to learn about this holiday with these family-friendly activities!

Build a Sukkah

Okay, so your kiddos aren’t building the ‘hut’ themselves. But, they can help you. Have the kids pitch in and help to design the structure. They can make drawings or use pencils to create their own blueprints. Even if you don’t work directly from the plans, the drawing part is still a fun (and creative) way for your child to celebrate.

Decorate the Sukkah

After it’s built, get the kids to help you add some holiday décor. Use a harvest theme and gather together dried gourds. Have the kids tie twine or yarn around them, and hang the gourds around the sukkah.

Read a Book
