8 Easy Passover Kids Crafts to Make


Creative Ways to Celebrate Pesach

Passover this year starts at sundown on Friday, April 22 and runs for eight days through May 2, 2016. Like most Jewish holidays, the Festival of Unleavened Bread as it is also known, is centered around the kids. So why not challenge them with some fun DIY crafts, recipes and activities as you learn together about Passover and the Story of the great exodus out of Egypt?

Depending on the age and skill of your child, he or she may be able to do these alone, while others will require adult supervision. Of course, by all means, if you have time to take a break from your pre-holiday spring cleaning marathon, you won't regret enjoying making a craft or two with your children while bonding.

First up is the adorable Jumping Origami Frogs and Lilly Pads craft pictured at the top of this post which doubles as a fun game and is super easy to make. All your child needs is origami colored paper to fold the paper frogs, some paper cupcake liners and washable kids magic markers to number the cupcake liner lilly pads.
