Yom Kippur Shofar Craft for Kids

shofar

Known as the Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur is one of the two Jewish High Holidays along with Rosh Hashanah. One part of the holiday tradition is to blast the shofar (a ram’s horn) during temple or synagogue services. Why? The sound of the shofar is a reminder to look inward and take stock of the past year – during this introspective time. Introduce your child to the shofar with a creative kids’ craft!

Materials:

  • A cardboard tube – reuse an empty paper towel roll
  • Scissors
  • Colorful duct tape
  • Crayons

Instructions:

  1. Cut the tube from bottom to the top, lengthwise.
  2. Starting at the bottom, fold one end of the tube over the other. Pull the end over until the tube begins to make a cone shape. Continue moving the edges of the cardboard to make the ram’s horn shape.
  3. Secure the bottom and top of the cardboard shofar with duct tape.
  4. Cover the rest of the shofar with colorful duct tape and crayon drawings. Use one hue or make a rainbow with bold stripes of tape. Your child can also cut the tape into shapes, make patterns or create letters to add to the design. Make sure to fold the tape at the bottom completely under the tube and into the inside.
