Fold and decorate. Remember idea can be used for any season as Halloween (candy corns), Christmas ( mints) and Easter (chocolate eggs).

Building a Sukkah

Our grandsons celebrated the festival of Sukkot, commemorating God's enveloping protection of children of Israel. They built a sukkah - a hut of temporary construction, with a roof covering of raw, unfinished vegetable matter (branches, reeds, bamboo, etc.) signifying the temporality and fragily of human habitation and man-made shelter and our utter dependence upon God's protection and providence. For 7 days they camped outside however in a regular tent next to the sukkah.
