When a party hat becomes Har Sinai!
When we walked into daycare to pick up the baby, a two year old was having a birthday party. All the kids were wearing party hats, which was adorable, and my big kids were more than happy to eat their sister’s cupcake. The party hats were solid green…which triggered an idea. What if we made the hats into mini Har Sinais? Our daycare provider chimed in, reminding me of the gemara which says that at the time Hashem gave us the Torah, He held the mountain over our heads and we had no choice but to accept the Torah. Wearing a Har Sinai hat would be a funny way to illustrate that.
I had envisioned these more as centerpieces and less as hats, but the kids found it hilarious to wear Har Sinai on their heads.

Har Sinai Hats
Active: 5-10 minutes
Drying: 15 minutes+ if using paint
Solid green party hat or green paper rolled in a cone shape
2 small pieces of thin cardboard (a cereal box works well)
Decorate your hat with flower stickers, or glue on flowers cut from paper.
To make the luchot, cut the shape out of two pieces of carboard. I stacked them on top of each other while cutting to get them even. Put the toothpick between the two pieces and tape together. Insert into the small hole at the top of the hat.
