This week in Shalom Chaverim we prepared for a trip to visit the sukkah together!
We prepared our own special kibud (snack!) to eat in a special place– the sukkah! We d measured out the ingredients together into a big bowl, and then we mixed and mixed. (A challenge for developing fine motor strength and control!)
Then, we scooped our chocolate-chip-pumpkin cookie dough onto trays to bake.
While they baked, we prepared for our special trip through playing, building, and creating together.
We made our own instruments, to carry on our sukkah parade. We selected fall colors and shapes to add to our creation, and counted out objects to fit inside.
And we were hard at work, creating sukkot on our own, with blocks, with leaves, and even with play dough and sticks.
When we built, we checked to make sure our animal friends could look up in the roof and see the stars!
Finally, we were ready to visit the sukkah, and all the way we sang and danced together. When we arrived, we shook a lulav, shared our special cookies together, and peered up at the sky through the branches.
