Passover Crafting

Though I love to look at other people’s crafts, I myself am not exactly a crafty person. But I thought that perhaps you, like me, might want to check out some of the cool stuff that people are planning for Passover. (If you haven’t yet seen our Kveller Crafts Pinterest board, you might want to stop there too!)

First stop is the gorgeous afikomen cover here on Kveller. It’ll add a special twist to your matzah hunt.



We also think that this recycled seder plate is a great activity. It’s easy to start a conversation with your kids about the importance of conserving and reusing, and this plate can be as simple or as complex as you’d like it to be, depending on the age of your kids and your artistic desires.



Of course, you could also go to the local craft store to do it up with this slightly fancier homemade seder plate, which, as you can see, is kinda beautiful.



And then there’s these great crafts from Modern Jewish Mom–a diorama showing the parting of the Red Sea (perfect for when you teach your kids the story of Passover), and decorated pillowcases to help you recline in style at your seder.





Oh, and stay tuned for Tamara Reese’s sticky frogs, a perfect seder-party-favor for your littlest guests.
