None of the festivals is as rich in mitzvot as is the Festival of Sukkot. (Chabad.org)

To explain the Festival of Sukkot to a pre-teen, you will want to tell a story of what a sukkah is and of why a sukkah is needed. You might begin by saying something like this:

  • When our ancestors dwelt in the wilderness they lived in temporary shelters called sukkah. To remember them, we honor them once a year on days appointed by G-d, the Festival of Sukkot, by building a shelter that we may dwell in as God commanded that we do.
