Yom Ha'Atzmaut

Okay, I should've posted this ages ago but I've had some serious scanner problems so I figure better late than never, right? 

My daughter's school does something big for Yom Ha'Atzmaut every year.  The past few years it's been a fundraising jog-a-thon.  This year, they students ran to "cities" in Israel.  An obstacle course was set up all over campus and the kids had to run to Eilat, Masada, Kirya Shmona, Haifa, Tel Aviv and everyone ran the final lap into Jerusalem.  At each city, the kids had their passport punched and tried to get to each city at least three times. 

I liked using the Hanukkah papers because of the perfect blue and white colors of the Israeli flag.  I was able to take one of the elements of the borders sheet, cover up the "celebrate the lights" line so that it was usable for another event.  A little vellum for journaling and it was a perfect way to share the story. 


  1. What a great layout!
    Love the activity at the school.
    Love the way you covered the "celebrate the lights" - brilliant!
