Pretend City Rosh Hashanah Festivities

We visited Pretend City to learn about Rosh Hashanah and we had a blast, as usual. Pretend City is always a place where my kids always feel at home and excited to learn. When we visited for the Rosh Hashanah celebration it was no different. We got to watch a video about the Holiday and also had fun mixing flour, water, and cinnamon to make a “bread” it smelled wonderful and my kids had so much fun. We also received some fantastic Apple and honey recipes that have been fantastic. The kids favorite are the honey cookies they are super yummy. It was a great day discovering all the play centers and finishing the day as we always do in the art center where the kids got to make a fun collage and play with play dough.

Rosh Hashanah Celebration- Thursday, September 29th, all day
Today we will celebrate the Jewish New Year of Rosh Hashanah with Engineer Ari from our book of the day: Engineer Ari and the Rosh Hashanah Ride. We will hop aboard his train and journey through Jerusalem to collect goodies to celebrate the Jewish New Year. During his journey across Israel, we will learn an important lesson about friendship and forgiveness. This journey will be an introduction to the first historical train ride from Jaffa to Jerusalem in 1892.
