Rosh Hashanah Paper Fortune cookies

Share your hopes for a sweet new year!


I can hardly believe that Rosh Hashanah is really around the corner! Summer here was a mess of plumbing problems, that ended up with a renovated bathroom and some new concrete on the floor in the garage. Sigh – this was not in our summer plans! But as we get ready to face a new year, we are all thinking about what might happen in the year to come.

We decided the fold up our new year’s wishes in paper fortune cookies! These would be really fun to share at your Rosh Hashanah table. We stuck with simple messages like “I hope you have a sweet new year” but you can put in whatever you want, deep or funny.


These were pretty easy to make, thanks to youtube.  This one requires more adult hands-on than some of our other projects because of the glue gun and the harder fold, but kids can definitely come up with the fortunes themselves! Share any good ones you come up with!
