Pantyhouse Challah and Edible Apple Bowl with Honey
A hilarious, self-proclaimed Balabusta (Yiddish for female boss of the home; a praiseworthy Jewish homemaker) blogs about her life in the Bible Belt at Bible Belt Balabusta. Her site contains tons of awesome craft ideas, many holiday-themed, including Lego Mezuzah and an edible Mt. Sinai for Shavuot. Keep it bookmarked, because you'll love discovering what perfect little project she's invented and what funny thing she'll say next. Her Rosh Hashanah crafts include pantyhose Challah (really!) and an edible apple bowl with honey inside.

Honey Jar
Chabad.orgs kid's section has the cutest craft I've seen yet. Try looking at this bee-u-tiful honey jar without smiling. And who cares if your kid's looks nothing like the example? Embrace the adorable, lopsided insect faces he or she creates.

Toddlers will love playing with glitter and glue as they make this non-perishable (and sparkly!) symbolic craft from the Birkat Chaverim blog.

There are some pretty complicated instructions for making homemade Shofars out there, involving tubing, funnels, and trips to the hardware store. Spend more time with your family and less time wrestling bits and pieces this Rosh Hashanah with Highlights Kids easy-peasy yet pretty paper horn.
