Rosh Hashanah Snacks and Crafts

green apple

Rosh Hashanah is the first of the Jewish High Holidays. Also known as the Jewish New Year, Rosh Hashanah is a time to reflect and prepare for the year to come. One of the most notable symbols of this holiday is the apple. Eating apple slices dipped in honey represents the wish to have a sweet new year. Help your child celebrate this holiday with an easy Rosh Hashanah apple-themed craft (or two)!

Apple Prints

Slice an apple lengthwise or cut it into wedges. Pour a plate of tempera and let your little artist dip the apple in. Press the pain-covered fruit onto a piece of paper to make a holiday print. Try one print (or a few, with overlapping colors) onto a piece of card stock paper. Add a holiday message and hand out the artsy cards to friends and family members.

Paper Mache

Blow up a balloon to make the ‘apple’ shape. Dip red strips of construction paper into paper mache mix. You can buy pre-packaged mix at a craft store or make your own by mixing equal parts water and flour with a few squeezes of school glue. Wrap the balloon, let it dry and ad a piece of green tissue paper at the top to make a stem.

Apple Lacing Cards

Paint a paper plate red or green. Punch holes along the outer rim. Have your child wind a piece of yarn through, ‘sewing’ her Rosh Hashanah apple craft!
