It’s a Sukkah Time Machine!

The children in the School-Day Program at the Jewish Enrichment Center built an indoor sukkah out of PVC pipes, fabric, twine and branches. One child commented that he did not want to be transported back to ancient times while in the sukkah, and the concept of a sukkah time machine was born!

The children individually made paper chains, then attached them together to make one long paper chain. After that they constructed a creative story in which the sukkah time machine, which is powered by paper chains (of course!), breaks down in ancient Egypt.

The travelers meet Pharaoh, who imprisoned their teacher. They must rescue their teacher from captivity, repair the paper chains, and get back to their own time before Pharaoh wakes from his nap. Check out the video here, and note the elaborate costumes!
