WEEK 4 THEME IS…
Rabbi Pokras shares the Hebrew words of the week: Artic, menta, shokolad, banana and leemon. What’s your favorite flavor of the rainbow?
RAINBOW YARN ART:
Creating rainbows is one of our favorite things to do in art! We’ve painted and colored and even used leaves in art last week. Let’s try string art! Learn how to make a beautiful wall hanging with a colorful rainbow yarn art project! Here are the instructions.
Rainbows are inclusive; in fact they include every color in the spectrum! Try these mixed-media rainbow-themed art projects. Mixed-media means adding all different kinds of art into one main artwork. Check out these projects and send us the photos of your creative work:
RAINBOW THEMED COLORING PAGES:
Here is our special Kayitz challah recipe. Each week there will be a special ingredient(s) suggested which has to do with the theme of the week!
THIS WEEK’S SECRET INGREDIENTS:
Separate Challah dough into three uniformed balls. Mix a different food coloring into each ball and braid together to make a Rainbow Challah! You can even put rainbow-colored sprinkles on top! The rainbow challah in this picture was made by Rabbi Weiss’ family.
RAINBOW RICE KRISPY TREATS:
Ingredients: Butter, Rice Krispy cereal, Marshmallows and food coloring
VEGETABLE RAINBOW DISH:
Here’s a healthy vegetable rainbow dish.
Ingredients: Red bell pepper, yellow bell pepper, zuchinni, hummous for dipping
WEEKLY SPORTS CHALLENGE:
Have you ever noticed that when you throw a ball in a game of catch, the ball arches like a rainbow? This week, let’s explore one of our favorite summer games, Lacrosse! Learning basic lacrosse skills is great for hand-eye coordination and general fitness, and is a terrific way to build confidence. Here’s the challenge. We can’t wait to hear how it goes!
It is time to stretch – just like the arch of a rainbow! Take a moment to learn new yoga skills and check out this fun activity!
The Jewish value of Reut means friendship. Make a colorful gift for a friend! Use your imagination and get creative! It could be a picture, a bracelet, cookies or you can even go to their house and write a kind message in colorful chalk on their sidewalk!
THEMED FOOD DRIVE:
Do a mitzvah each week with your family! Every Friday we will be collecting food for a themed food drive at Temple Beth Ami’s main entrance from 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM. Donations will go to Nourish Now.
This week, the theme of the food drive is Colors of the Rainbow. We will be collecting beautifully colored boxes of cereal, non-refrigerated fruit juice bottles, boxes or pouches (no sugar added) on Friday, July 17.
In order to keep everyone as safe as possible, please follow these guidelines for a contactless dropoff:
– Cars should line up in the carpool lane.
– If there are other cars ahead of you, please wait until they drop off their donation and leave before you exit your car.
– Please wear a mask and maintain appropriate social distancing when you are outside of your car.
NATURE’S PAINT BRUSH:
Go on a hunt for beautiful green leaves and use them to make these colorful leaf prints. After watching this video, try using white paper as the base and colorful paint on the leaves as another version of the project.
Love leaf printing? Check out this unique technique for colorful art with leaves.
Before you start your leaf hunt, check out this Leaf Identification guide, or click on the image to the left. It can help you learn what different leaves are called while also making sure you only pick up the safe leaves.
Each week our campers can look forward to playing a game of Bingo with the week’s theme, just like we do on Shabbat at camp! The colors we see every day make our lives more beautiful. We hope this Colors of the Rainbow Bingo will brighten your day!
