Beautiful Bubbles

Shani Klein

The days are hot and long, so why not spend some time experimenting with bubble art and giant bubbles? Don’t forget to send in your photos!

 

Shragi and Shia and B is for Bubbles

Yael Mermelstein

Savta and Saba always send the absolute best birthday presents from Israel. One year they sent me an alarm clock that sings “Modeh Ani” to wake me up in the morning. That was the only year I actually got to yeshivah on time every day — until Shia accidentally sat on it, but whatever. Another year they sent me a jar of gobstopper candies from Israel. Those candies NEVER ran out of flavor and you could suck on them all day.

 

Seashells

Gila Zemmel

If you’re taking a trip to the seaside this summer, look out for some of these beautiful shells. All over the world, wherever shells are found, they are used in a variety of ways. Because of their beauty, they feature in artwork, are made into mosaics, decorate furniture, and have traditionally been made into all sorts of jewelry. Shells have been used as paint holders, chess pieces, bugles, and trumpets; as hand weapons, scrapers, and clasps; shell collecting is a popular hobby worldwide.
