Parshat lech lecha "curriculum": project and craft ideas

So thinking up activities the night before or the day of is starting to take its toll. I am not a very organized person so it is not easy for me to do this, but I am going to start planning out our schedule weeks at time. We are going to use the weekly Torah portion to guide our lessons.

Here is an overview of what our week will look like. I will update photos and ideas as we do them:

Parasha Story

Build tent with beach umbrella
and act out story of Avraham leaving father's land and inviting guests to his tent
