For the Kids
Sukkot is a holiday when we are commanded to be happy. We feel cleansed and joyful after Yom Kippur is over and now it is time to party!
Here is a tasty sukkah.
You will need:
1. 3 halves of Graham Crackers
(two pieces broken into halves).
2. Smooth/Creamy peanut butter.
3. Small thin pretzel sticks.
4. Fruit-shaped cereal or candy.
5. Popsicle stick/plastic knife (optional)
Paper or foam plate to build on.
Build a three-sided sukkah by "gluing" the edges of three graham crackers together with peanut butter. The crackers should be in a "U" shape. Make sure they are at a 90-degree angle from each other.
Dip fruit-shaped cereal in the peanut butter and gently stick onto inside and outside walls.
Make a roof by spreading peanut butter on the pretzels, laying them across the crackers and then sticking cereal on top of the pretzels.
