Simchat Torah is coming up next Monday--it will end the holiday of Sukkot and the month long high holiday season. It's a joyous day with lots of singing and dancing and children especially love to join in the celebration. Here is how to make their very own toy Torah they can carry during the festive day.
I started with very simple materials. The cardboard tube inserts from paper towels make up the Torah scrolls. The rest are things I found at the craft store--colored felt, wood dowels and wood balls.
I found the crown clip art online. It can be printed and blown up to any size you wish.
I cut all my shapes out of felt using very sharp scissors and glued the "end caps" with a glue gun.
After gluing all the felt into place...
I painted the wood balls and dowels with acrylic paint. Then I stuffed plastic wrap inside the cardboard tubes to keep the dowels in place.
