Tu B'Shevat Resource Kit Guide

From enjoying a fruit-filled Seder to planting a tree, Tu B'Shevat is a dynamic, kid-friendly celebration.

Tu B'Shevat is an amazing holiday, but finding age-appropriate resources can be tough. That's why this year, Jvillage has introduced a special Tu B'Shevat resource kit to help you bring the joy of this holiday to your community. 

Featuring tactile and hands-on activities, our kit is built from the simple understanding that the best kind of learning happens when kids are actively engaged.

Guide Notes:

Organized by type of activity- multimedia, creative crafts, and family-friendly resources, our guide allows you to quickly and easily find the right activity that will best appeal to your child or class. The section where the link can be found within the kit is italicized. Items marked with an * are just right for the K and under set.
