Ten Commandments Origami
This simple paper-folding craft is one that will enable you to talk about the meaning of Shavuot with children. This hand-on project comes with a printable PDF that you can have children decorate with some Hebrew letters or use a plain sheet of paper and decorate with stamps or paint. Then follow the step-by-step instructions for folding, and you’ll end up with a beautiful version of the Ten Commandments tablets that you can stand up on display for the holiday.

Recycled Plastic Bottle Flowers
Flowers are a great addition to any Shavuot table, and these beautiful ones made from recycled plastic bottles are no exception. You can get creative in your choice of paint color and design of flower petal cuts however you choose. The end product will be a beautiful bouquet that you can display on your Shavuot table, and, best yet, the arrangement won’t wilt!

Mount Sinai, the Ten Commandments, and Us
This engaging project will teach children about the Ten Commandments, which is a huge part of the holiday of Shavuot. Involving children in the story of receiving the Ten Commandments on Mount Sinai helps them connect to the lessons, and the craft involves placing themselves in the picture to signify that they, as Jews, were also there during this important moment in our history.

Using faux flowers and greenery of your choice and floral wire, you’ll be able to create a beautiful head piece to wear during Shavuot and all spring long. Make matching ones or keep each crown individually creative. Either way you will feel festive and ready to celebrate Shavuot!
