Mt. Sinai Muffins, Origami 10 Commandments & More Shavuot Crafts

By at 12:12 pm

The focus around Shavuot is often on the dairy products: cheesecake, blintzes, and kugel. But it’s fun to change it up with a few springtime crafts. We’ve found some of our favorites to share with you (and check out our Pinterest board for a few more ideas, too).

One of our more popular crafts here on Kveller are these Mount Sinai muffins–an edible craft. They’re simple to make, super-fun to decorate with kids, and a great way to start a conversation about the holiday (for more on that, click here). And did we mention that they taste good, too?

If you’d prefer not to eat your crafts, check out these beautiful springtime flowers that you can use as a centerpiece on your Shavuot table. They’re from our friend Sara over at Creative Jewish Mom and she says they’re easy to make with kids, and can even be a great last-minute project.

Lastly, a Torah-centric craft: origami 10 commandments from Joanna at Bible Belt Balabusta. You might have to help your kids with the folding, but they can certainly color and decorate. And it’s a great time to talk about the importance of our favorite commandment, #5: Honor your father and your mother.
