The objective was to have trumpet themed food. To make trumpet shaped foods it helps to have cream horn molds and some kind of dough that I could shape or wrap to look “trumpety”. Having NO experience with wonton, puff pastry, nor Phyllo dough I bough some of all three.

Burning Bush Luminary
I love crafts but I hate those “nonsense crafts” we moms tend to chunk as soon as the kids get back from VBS or school. You all know the ones, the fluffy cotton ball sheep craft, the toilet paper roll Moses… yeah THOSE crafts. Why do crafts have to be disposable? If our kids are going to bother taking the time to make a craft shouldn’t it be something that can be useful or at least pretty when placed on a shelf. If we keep showing our children we do not value their time, I can just imagine that they will stop trying to do things to the best of their abilities. I mean, wouldn’t you? So I want to start trying to make a tad more meaningful crafts. Ones that have a purpose or at least ones that are worthy of hanging on a wall or setting on a mantle for a time. Which brings me to my next craft.
This week’s Torah Portion talks about the burning bush. This craft is simple enough for kiddos to craft but nice enough adults can appreciate! Of course, younger kids may need a little help but it is quick and easy and something you would be at least be happy to let them set in their rooms as a night light!!

Hanukkah Bear “Mason Jar” Snow Globes
Finding Hanukkah decorations can be a bit of a challenge in a small rural town, so why not make your own!! Even if you are in a big city where Hanukkah is well represented, this is just too cute to pass up!
I decided to try my hand at making a Hanukkah themed Mason Jar Snow Globe! These can be used as décor or given as gifts!!
We did this craft for one of our activities during Hanukkah!
