Making art for the holiday of Sukkot is a great opportunity for you to create an art gallery.
For anyone reading this who doesn’t know what Sukkot is, it’s a Jewish holiday that includes a Sukakh ( an outdoor hut) that Jews eat in for the duration of the holiday.
Since children love to decorate their Sukkot, it is the perfect time to use all that process only art to decorate the Sukkot with.
You can have the children make paintings of all kinds, collages and all sorts of art projects that are not product focused to use as decorations for the Sukkah walls.
All you need to do is to back the paintings with complementary color pieces of oak tag and you have a beautiful piece of artwork for the Sukkah.
If you don’t have any paintings you can take an assortment of the children’s drawings or collages and again frame them and them arrange them artistically on the walls.
You can then invite friends in to see the exhibition.
If you would like some more holiday appropriate art activities for Sukkot I can give you 2 more ideas.
You will then havae a beautiful, multi media piece of artwork for the Sukkah.
Another activity to do to help decorate the Sukkah is to string items to hang from the ceiling. Whatever you find that is string-able will work for this activity.
You can use cut up pieces of straws, pieces of styrofoam, small, plastic whiskey cups, pieces of aluminum foil to insert in between items which will make your strung item sound like a wind chime (hopefully) .
Your imagination is the limit as to what will string, look pretty and is not too heavy.
Once all strung, you can use these decorative pieces to hang up on the bamboo sticks or whatever else you are using as a ceiling for your Sukkah.
