A fruity post for a change

Just to prove that this isn't actually the Chaya Devoira blog, as you might have thought recently, here is a post that has nothing to do with her.

As tonight is Tu BiShvot (note that the correct Ashkenazic pronunciation is Sh'vot and not Sh'vat, despite the latter being common usage), Shayna Brocho and Chana Liba made fruity crafts in school today.

Chana Liba made a fruit garden, complete with fence...

The fruit, from left to right, are a star fruit, a slice of orange with a piece os glace cherry in the middle, a rolled slice of dried apple, and a fusalis (also known as a Chinese gooseberry, despite not being Chinese, and not remotely related to the gooseberry).

The grass effect was made, rather curiously, by smearing a piece of cling film with jam, and sprinkling desiccated coconut over it. I'm not quite sure why, but it did make for a rather sticky walk home from school!

Shayna Brocho made a very cute craft, which at first glance does look rather like a hippopotamus, but is in fact a baby buggy, complete with grape baby...

It looks a lot more like a buggy in real life! This craft was rather appropriate for Chaya Devoira, who unexpectedly ended up being mentioned in this post as well! Maybe I should change the name to the Chaya Devoira Blog :)
