Harper goes to a Jewish preschool and has been learning a lot about all the Jewish holidays. This is the first year that I feel she really understands (and is interested) in learning about what each of the holidays mean. Aside from the fact that her preschool has been closed many days this past month for all the Jewish holidays, she has really enjoyed what her teachers have been discussing in class. This week is Simchat Torah, and she brought home her own little handmade Torah that she made in class. She was so so soooo excited to show me this little felt Torah she made. And it was then that I realized I had a Torah cookie cutter stashed in a drawer somewhere. I had bought it for 25 cents at a garage sale just for times like these! (Keep your eyes open at those garage sales, people! You never know what treasures you may find!!)
Harper's lunch here is in an EasyLunchboxes container. She has a peanut butter and honey sandwich in the shape of a Torah. You can pick a up a Torah Cookie Cutter for your little one over at Amazon. She also has snap peas in a Kitchen Supplies Silicone Cup, green grapes and The Laughing Cow Original Creamy Swiss Cheese Wedge. On the cheese is a "Let's Party" sticker, because, Simchat Torah is a celebration, and well, us Jewish people LOVE to party.
