Here are some tips about hosting a really fun Challah cover decorating party!
You can use plain handkerchiefs to make your challah cover! You can also order our kits from Benny's Judaica.
Reach out to another family or two and invite them to decorate with you. Each family can register to receive their own kit. OR contact Lori Rubin who can help connect you with another jkidphilly family near you!
Each kit contains a couple of markers--you may want to purchase additional fabric markers for your decorating party. Puffy paint is also fun for extra touches!
On the day of your party, put on our jkidphilly Shabbat Spotify playlist--great music to inspire your artists!
If children are working on one challah cover together, help them determine which part each child is working on. Check in while they are working to make sure it's a real collaboration! We also have many fun Shabbat coloring pages that you can download and print so everyone has plenty of coloring materials!
While the kids are working, take a few pictures or short video--we'd love to see your covers! You can post them on our facebook page.
Have some board games ready for kids to play when they finish coloring.
Artists get hungry! You may want to make time for snacks.
We also have tools to help you practice the Motzi blessing with your jkids. Click here for a great video modeling the blessings.
