Sukkot Ain’t Over Yet



This totally happened to the box of tissues in my house the other day.

Personally, I’m a fan of celebrating holidays as much as I can. Sukkot is usually one of them–though we have no outdoor space to build a sukkah, I try to find my way into someone else’s. Or do some fall baking, or something like that. But this year–well, all of the members of my household have colds. And Sukkot–a holiday where you celebrate by being outdoors in a hut–doesn’t go so well when you’re sneezing and coughing all over each other.

So we’re doing Sukkot a bit late–and in our own style. My daughter and I are going to celebrate the end of Sukkot with this delicious edible sukkah craft. All you need are crackers, cream cheese, carrot sticks, and some cherry tomatoes. Since my 2-year-old will only eat the crackers and cream cheese, I’ll be left to eat the vegetables on my own. But it’s cool–because we’ll be spending time together and learning something,  too.

(If you’re not feeling like doing Sukkot–try this edible turkey Torah craft for Simchat Torah! We’re big on eating our crafts these days.)

Chag sameach–a happy holiday!
