Last weeks Torah portion was on the building of the tabernacle. So we built a tabernacle after Sabbath complete with a Lego figure of Aaron. Behind the veil is a replica of the ark of the covenant and inside the ark is a container of manna, Aaron's rod and the tablets with the ten words.
The boys played with it for hours. They built paper tents to surround the tabernacle and filled them with Lego men. They tried to offer up burnt offerings by using a Lego horse and pretending that it was a bull or ram. I honestly didn't think that they would enjoy it so much but it has been a huge hit. They have played with it the entire past week.
