Chadis Crafts' Fun Pages


This page was designed to help parents, scout leaders and teachers find information about crafts and were to order often hard to find supplies. As a former teacher trainer and member of many education committees, I just can't resist listing sites I find on the net that look helpful to teachers.

First I had to divide the resource and supply pages into Jewith and Non Jewish.

Now the pages have got so long I have divide the Jewish pages into two Jewish resources and Jewish Supply Sources.

I suggest that Jewish teachers look carefully through all of these pages as many of the basic skills and lessons listed are invaluable and can be applied to any setting.


    Offers candles and candlemaking supplies. I just realized I needed to list them on the Jewish Pages. They have beeswax and parafin sheets.(great for rolling Chanukah and Havdallah Candles.) I recently visited their site again and found parafin sheets. They say they are cheaper than beeswax and softer for children to use. They have some great metal molds including 6 sided star pillar and shabbat candles. Plus oil for Channukah mennorahs or Shabbat but they seem to carry many accessories. Watch for more candles projects as I bought some of their paints.

  • - Just for the Mitzvah Catalog.
    Jewish Craft Supplies. Just redid their site. Now has a new on line catalog. Lots of great Jewish crafts including lots of wooden projects. Most are in the $1.00-$2.50 each in dozen lots. (slightly higher for individual sets.) Since many projects look like they would take longer than the 30 to 40 minutes in a typical class, (while you wait for paint and glue to dry etc.) it looks like they would fit my 2 day budget. I especially liked the many mennorah and seder plate kits.

  • Jewish Craft Cuts
    Incredible fine artist and Judaic artist, Goldie Silberberg has kits for paper cutting and free lessons to share.

    She also has beautiful Judaica for purchase on her other site. Ketubahs, family trees, Bar and Bat Miztvah gifts and more.

  • Janie's Coloring Hats
    Hats to color for all occasions, holidays, camps, birthday parties etc. Great pictures and very reasonably priced. Perfect for classes, camps, libraries, zoos and more that need a creative project. Pictures printed on the hats are great and real fun looking. Plus large area left for child to individualized and add his or her own creative designs. She has a great section for Jewish Holiday Hats! Holidays, Shabbat, Israel, Aleph Bet, Birthday, Tzedakah, Brachot and Israeli Flag. Pictures are really appropriate for the occasion, lots of Hebrew too.

    A old favorite catalog of mine. She just starting to put some of her craft products on a seperate site. Now mostly great fabrics. You can order free catalog for crafts, minatures, charms, jewelry,fabric,rubber stamps, ceramic kits, and gifts. Has many things for home decorating, jewelry making and simchas. Includes some great sponge painting kits. Has great FABRIC for make your one tallits. Catalog now features ready made (for people like me that are crafty but can't sew) aprons, place mats, clothes made of Jewish FABRIC. Also great fabric for the new fabric bowl craze!

    See Lori's Crafts at Chadis Crafts and Kippot for ideas on Judaic fabric bowls. For those of us that can't sew, I have already bought many of her products and they are incredible! Lori is a visiting artist at
