    In my family, the kids spend erev sukkos making a huge paper chain decoration for our sukkah. It is very easy to make. Simply cut a paper into ten strips, give the kids glue, and that’s all. It’s a beautiful decoration and it really adds to the sukkah. Anybody have any other suggestions for nice decorations that are easy to make.

    I like using natural, local materials. This year, I collected pinecones around the neighborhood and we’ll be rolling them in glue, then in glitter, and hanging them up — pretty and shimmery. A more involved project I did today is hanging lamps. I saved some opened cans of olives, washed them out, and then punched out designs in them with a hammer and nail. Then just stick a tea light candle in the bottom and voila, hanging lamps that look gorgeous at night. You could also paint or cover the can in paper or contact paper before you punch out the design, but I’m here in Israel and think my cans of Kibbutz Yavne olives are cute the way they are.

    Mother101, for it to take longer, give your kids white paper (scrap) and have them color the paper with crayons or markers and then cut them out.

    My mother bought big foam balls and small flowers and covered the balls in flowers, then took a ribbon and hung it up from the ‘ceiling’. They look very nice.

    We also cover the bottom half of the walls with fabric and then drape some more from beam to beam which looks really nice too.

    I saw a beautiful thing. Buy a styrofoam ball(not very small), and buy many nice, big flowers(fake).

    With straight pins you pin on the flowers all around until the ball is all covered. Hand from the succah ceiling.

    there are many chains that can be made out of paper. also paper lanterns are very easy. you fold a page vertically and make slits on the folded side being careful not to go through to the bottom. you open the paper and make it into a circle horizontally stapling the top and the bottom so that it resembles a lantern. you take a strip of paper and staple it to each side to form the handle.
