Tu B’Shevat

BEFORE.

BEFORE.

In my Tu B’Shevat book, Happy Birthday, Tree, Joni makes a promise to take care of the trees of the world.

As a project this week, 70 kids told me how they would take care of the trees, the environment, and the world. It was set up like Yoko Ono’s Wishing Tree, where the kids write their promises on leaves. We hung the leaves from the branches. (Don’t worry: most of the leaves were cut from papers that we’d used for other projects.)

  1. What a great idea! I love the idea of using scrap paper for the leaves. :)

    I cheated and used a branch today, but it’s at a synagogue near you…
