I sewed up squares, included the tops and bottoms of the Torah as well as the hair in the seams. I had my two year olds glue on the face parts. I made a model, but the children had license to put the parts wherever. We talked about the Torah during the project, read a story, and practiced something the Torah teaches us. It was a great lesson. This is a good project-you can do a lot with it.

My 19 month old daughter is obsessed with the torah. If I have the time to get supplies, this looks like a great project for me to make for her.

I think this wouldn't work with a 3 year old class or 4 year old class because of the needle. But what I've seen in the other classes they use foam instead of felt and punch wholes so the kids can thread ribbon through it or they can use plastic rope called gympe. and fill it with cotton. That's just another Idea.

Simchas Torah Felt Torah
I think that if the Torah has hair, it should have a little felt Kippah too.
