Shabbos Stash:


  • Gingerbread man
  • Yellow fruit leather
  • Blue fruit leather or sour straws
  • Black licorice, black jelly bean, or mini chocolate chips to make eyes
  • Red fruit leather or red jellybean to make mouth
  • Large marshmallow
  • 2 graham crackers (optional:  only if making bed)
  • Powdered sugar


  • Scissors
  • Small bowl to make sugar glue

To Prepare:

  1. If making a bed, cut or snap one of the graham crackers in half, and cut or snap one of those halves in half (to make ¼ of a graham cracker)
  2. Cut blue fruit leather or sour straws into thin strips
  3. If using black licorice, cut two tiny pieces to make eyes.
  4. Cut a tiny piece of red fruit leather or jelly bean to make a mouth.
  5. Cut a large marshmallow into slices about ¼” thick to make a pillow
  6. Mix water into powdered sugar to make a thick glue.
