Sukkah Surprise

The best thing ever in re-usable sukkah decorations: washable markers.

This year, I used a black permanent marker to draw images of the seven kinds (dates, figs, olives, pomegranates, grapes, wheat, barley) on a white sheet which formed the back of our sukkah. The (very young) children at our sukkah-decorating party colored them in - or around - or, really, in totally unrelated designs - using Crayola's new WASHABLE MARKERS. The effect was, well, colorful. And unique.

But, this being Oregon, it soon rained, and we had lovely streaky sheets for a day. Then it really poured, and all we had left was the original outlines.

Which they can color in again next year.

Except for the ones who are too busy eating the markers to color.

Apparently the orange marker was quite tasty.
