Passover celebrates the release of the Jews from slavery in Egypt. Each year families gather to tell the story of Passover. My kids delight in the story and love to recount the plagues each year. During the Seder you can be sure to see my kids running around the house acting like the frogs! I am always on the look out for ideas and crafts to keep Passover fun and entertaining for the kids! Lucky for me I found Sara, better known as Creative Jewish Mom and she has graciously offered to share some of her great Passover crafts with me on her blog Creative Jewish Mom! Please feel free to click the link to find Passover crafts!

Shalom Sesame Street also rolls out this week and Grover is super duper excited to share his first, Seder or passover meal with his Sesame Street friends. You can visit the Sesame Street site to find great options for teaching your child more about this holiday in a fun and age appropriate way ! Learn phrases, their meanings, listen to stories of Passover as well as meal time traditions and fun crafts. All done Sesame Style!
Passover Matzah Cover Craft
Felt or Fabric
Needle and Thread
Take two pieces of fabric or felt and sew together on three sides, leaving the fourth open, creating an envelope or pocket
Turn inside out, so seems are on the inside of the pocket
Use glitter glue to write "Matzah" in English (or Hebrew). You can also draw and cut out Passover pictures and glue them on the Matzah cover as well.
During the Passover meal (the seder) hide the middle matzah in the pocket. The seder cannot conclude until the child finds the matzah and returns to the one leading the seder.
