The main idea for kids: Shabbat is made sweet by spending time with family and by sharing delicious homemade foods, like traditional challah.

Recommended age: 3+

Supervision: Required

Supplies needed:

Instructions:

  1. Follow the baking instructions on the Voilà! Hallah box. Help your child by handing them pre-measured ingredients to add. Your child can help shape and braid the challah, too.
  2. If adding chocolate chips or raisins, add them right after the wet ingredients, before you start kneading the dough.
  3. Want to make babka (a loaf-shaped cake) instead? Visit tribesadozen.com/blog for more ways to use the mix.
  4. Visit JewishBoston.com/Shabbat for instructions and information about Shabbat rituals, including the blessing over challah.
