Are you the type of person who spends months pinning fun craft ideas for the holidays only to realize the holiday is tomorrow? Pinterest should have an alert button or something. Well here is your reminder: Rosh Hashanah begins next Wednesday night, so it’s time to stop pinning and start crafting!

I have found with my preschooler that crafts only keep his interest for about 30 minutes tops (sometimes five?) and extra bonus points if the craft involves getting messy. OY! I’ll admit while he has probably received three different sets of finger paints I have yet to embark on finger painting at my house (I’m also the Mama who has a little silent freak-out when my kid mixes Play-Doh colors).

Here are some fun Rosh Hashanah crafts for tiny fingers that actually only require one color and minimal mess.

3. This one over at Shiksa in the Kitchen is very low stress and can be done without a lot of adult supervision (aka at the kitchen table while I make dinner). Rosh Hashanhah Coloring sheet necklacerosh hashanah coloring necklace

4. For the more advanced crafters these shiny Styrofoam apples or yarn apples would look beautiful in a bowl as a holiday centerpiece and the napkin rings are fun all year round.
