Va’etchanan contains the words of the Shema, which states (among other things) the mitzvot of Torah study, tefillin and mezuzot.
“And these words, which I command you this day, shall be upon your heart. And you shall teach them to your sons and speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk on the way, and when you lie down and when you rise up. And you shall bind them for a sign upon your hand, and they shall be for tefillin between your eyes. And you shall inscribe them upon the doorposts (mezuzot) of your house and upon your gates.”
My kids wanted to incorporate this chocolate house kit into the parsha project. The obvious solution was to make a teeny-tiny mezuzah and affix it to the doorway.
