Using the Passover Kit: A Guide for Success

Wed, 03/30/2016 - 1:07pm -- Jvillage

happypassover_0.pngFrom reading the Four Questions to finding the afikomen, Passover is a dynamic, kid-centric celebration. But Seders can be long and Passover cereal just isn't the same, making Passover not every kid’s favorite holiday. Our Passover kit is here to help! With a focus on tactile, 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- building, baking, and so on, 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 Passover kit is italicized. Items marked with an * are specially for the Pre-K and under set.
