Shemini has a lot in it; consecration of the Mishkan, the misdeeds of Nadav and Avihu, and laws of keeping Kosher. Whow! We focused only on kosher, specifically on animals.
To be Kosher animals must 1)chew their cud 2) have split hooves. My girls can recite this parrot like, but understanding cud chewing needs further exploration. To make these two elements fun, we made cud chewing puppets.
One coloring page was split hooves and the other was an animal face.
The cow was from here. And the sheep here
Everyone enjoyed the coloring, cutting, and gluing onto a brown lunch bag.
I showed the girls this pig picture and we discussed how split hooves aren't enough. We couldn't make a pig puppet.
But we made some lovely kosher puppets!
