What You’ll Need
- Paper plate
- Construction paper
What to Do
1. Roll a large paper plate into a cone shape. Fasten it with tape.
2. Glue construction paper around the cone shape and trim the edges. Use markers or paint to decorate the horn, or glue on ribbon.
3. Slip a piece of yarn through the inside of the horn, and tie the ends to make a handle.
Extend the Fun
For younger kids: Decorate two paper plates and staple the edges together, with dry beans inside, to make a tambourine. Roll another cone-shaped instrument to make a trumpet or a megaphone. Tape several empty paper-towel tubes together, end-to-end, to make an Australian didgeridoo.
For older kids: Do a little detective work and find out more about the shofar and the autumn festival of Rosh Hashanah, which celebrates the start of the Jewish New Year. How could you use a shofar to call attention to an event?
