This past Sunday I had the pleasure of conducting one of my Fruit Funshops for Friendship Circle of Maryland, in honor of Tu b’shevat. If you want to do a fun activity with your kids for Tu b’shevat, keep reading for photos and instructions!

Tu B’shevat is the birthday of the trees!

Here are some photos of our Tu B’shevat Fruit Funshop.

For details on how you can make this project, for Tu B’shevat or just for fun, see my latest Israel Forever Foundation blog. I’m now officially an Israel Forever Foundation blogger. Look for my profile to go up soon.

Here is a permanent link.

We also did this Tu B’shevat craft at my Berman Hebrew Academy afterschool cooking class, yesterday. It is always so fascinating to see the different ways each child chooses to express themselves. We also made this Tu B’shevat salad.

By the way, I recognize that in these pictures we are using some fruits and veggies that do not grow on trees. It’s just too fun to make shapes with cantaloupe and watermelon!

facebook,social,social network,snI want to make two requests for us to make sure you are receiving and enjoying as many fun tips as possible from me! If you have not already, please like my Facebook page. If you have, please do one more thing for me. As you may know, Facebook has changed the way they do things so that people with professional pages essentially have to pay for the people who have liked their pages to see what they post. The way to make sure you see what I post (not tons, but what I put out is very helpful!), is to go to the page and then go to where you would normally click for Like (click if you haven’t already done so) and see the down arrow next to the word Like. Hover your mouse over it and then click on “See first.” Thank you!
