Rosh Hashana shofar: A shofar is a horn used for Jewish religious purposes. Shofar-blowing is incorporated in synagogue services on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. You can make them out of a rolled up paper plate or toilet paper rolls. Have some scissors, tape and paint on hand, too.

To commemorate this ritual, try this super easy craft that kids of all ages can get into. Just trace the apple core pattern onto foam (or recycled construction paper) and glue a magnet to the back.
