the adventures of baby Tot-Tot

 Pertaining to Parashot Lech-Lecha (Gen. 12:1-17:27; Isa. 40:27- 41:16; Romans 4:1-25) and Vayera (Gen. 18:1-22:24; I Kings 4:1-4:37; Luke 1:26-38, 24:36-53)

With us being busy and slightly under the weather, Parashot Lech Lecha and Vayera kind of got squished together into one week. Also, I want to be ahead of the parashah, so this week we started parashah Chayei Sarah.

We made a tent for Avraham, Sarah, Lot & Baby Yitzhak (or as my toddler calls him, baby Tot-Tot). The project is here:
We also made a family tree to show my daughter who her ancestors are. We completed the coloring pages from and talked about camels. Using the tent/characters plus some other little dolls, we "acted out" the visit from the three strangers. I introduced  the letter "C" and the color orange. And then we all got colds... but "cold" starts with "C" so Baruch HaShem! :)

I also discovered "Lego Abraham" on YouTube (, which was too old (and somber) for my little sensitive one, but my husband and I got a kick out of it! It would be great for adventurous little boys, though! It's more Star Wars than Ancient Near East, but it's fun.
