Snack ideas children can make themselves, even on Shabbat,* taken from the weekly parsha. Use as an opening to a lesson, or as an end in itself!

Jelly Bean Choshen

Torah

Tetzaveh / תצוה : SHMOT (EXODUS) Exodus  27:20-30:10 (link to the text on Sepharia)

Jelly beans really lend themselves nicely to the Choshen nosh. Each jelly bean is cut in two, to either be used in two places or shared amongst friends. So for each snack, you will only need:

  • 1/4 of a fruit leather roll
  • 6 jelly beans
  • 4 pieces of O-shaped cereal.

Instructions:

  1. Cut the fruit leather into a square large enough to hold 12 jelly bean halves.

2. Choose jelly beans of the approximate color of the jewels in the Choshen. Cut each in half, and place, cut side down, on the fruit leather. (Note: although you can use scissors, I found that this cracked my jelly beans to retain their “jewel” look, so I used a sharp knife).

3. Place jelly beans on the fruit leather as close as possible (if it matters to you) to the colors of the actual choshen. Place O-shaped cereal on the corners.

Learn, eat, bracha achrona…Yum!
