Rosh Hashanah: kid’s mitzvah checklist


After I did some browsing on the wonderful chinuch.org, I came up with some ideas for my kids and the Elul holidays.

Here’s one I want to share with you: Kid’s Rosh Hashanah Mitzvah Checklist (download as a Word .doc). You could decorate it or add in cute pictures if you want, but here is the basic template. It includes:

  • I said “I’m sorry” to people for things I did wrong.
  • I reviewed my machzor and learned about the holiday.
  • I prepared a dvar Torah for the table.
  • I helped get ready for Yom Tov.
  • I gave tzedaka before Yom Tov.
  • I listened to the shofar calling for me to do tshuvah.
  • I said “shechechyanu” on my new Yom Tov clothes.
  • I ate apples and honey.
  • I said the yehi ratzons on our simanim.
  • I sat quietly and davened with Daddy.
  • I went to Tashlich and thew away my aveirot.

It’s Elul!
