The main idea for kids: Create a challah cover to make our Shabbat celebration more beautiful.

Recommended age: 4+

Supervision: Recommended

Supplies needed:


  1. Spread newspaper on a flat work surface and put the challah cover on top.
  2. Think about what images represent your family. How could you draw your family? Can you try drawing a challah?
  3. Use the fabric markers to decorate the challah cover.
  4. Follow the directions on the fabric marker box for sealing the colors. After sealing, you can wash and dry the challah cover as needed.
  5. Visit for instructions and information about Shabbat rituals, including the blessing over challah.
