Miracle of Miracles!
Have you ever experienced a miracle? What's a miracle anyway? Is it something that only God can do? The rabbis say that it was the Jews who actually created the miracle of Chanukah. They fought to keep Judaism alive when it was in danger of being extinguished. Here, today, in America, we must fight the same battle. Be part of the miracle: Learn about your Jewish roots; study Hebrew; visit Israel; shine the beauty of our religion on the rest of the world by doing works of tzedakah (charity). Keep the miraculous flame of Judaism going. Don't let the light go out!
Well, here's something else you can do with apples to make great Chanukah gifts!
What You Need
Poster paint for paper or fabric paint
Paper plate or shallow tray
Paper or fabric
Knife to cut the apple
How to Make It
Apple printing is always fun there are two very different prints:
There are two different apple prints that are easy to make. Cut an apple in half through the stem to make an apple shape. Cut one through the middle to make a circle stamp with a star in the middle.
Put some paint on a tray or paper plate. Take your stamp, put it in the paint and then stamp it on a plain tote bag, T-shirt or paper.
Get creative by alternating shapes and colors.
Remember to put a thick layer of paper inside the shirt/tote to prevent the paint from bleeding through to the back of the fabric.
