10 Best Passover Seder Kids DIY Crafts


It's hard to believe it's been a whole year since I wrote the post 2012 Passover Crafts. But it's time again to inspire you with some fun new family friendly DIY ideas to celebrate the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Crafts are a wonderful way to enjoy quality time together and connect with kids. Just as meaningful are the heirloom craft projects that your child can create -- many that can be saved and brought out year after year for your Pesach celebration.
