The youngest group coloring in!

Tu Bishvat is always a special time for kids at Ohel Efraim.   This year was no different as we hosted the annual Tu Bishvat event.  The older kids learned about which brachot we make including spices with a great powerpoint by Rav Hillel.

Playing fruit bingo.

The younger kids played fruit bingo and made cut paper trees with Rabbanit Yael.  The youngest kids had fun with stickers and coloring in.

If you’re looking for a simple Tu Bishvat craft – try fruit bingo.  All you need are blank bingo boards 4) Bingo, and fruit stickers (or tree stickers).  Print out enough boards for all the kids, and then let them make their own boards by putting on stickers.  Put aside one of each sticker so that you can use them to choose a fruit to call out.  Let the Tu Bishvat fun begin!
