Passover Activities for Kids
Passover is here! We have created a list of some great activities for you do to with your children.
- Matzah House - Take a few pieces of leftover matzah to build and decorate a matzah house. This a great activity to incorporate engineering and design principles. Other fun Kosher decorations such as nuts and dried fruits can be used to add some flair to the house. #STEAM
- Matzah S'mores - Whether you make your s’mores over a spring bonfire or in the microwave marshmallow s’mores are a sweet treat to make with your matzah.
- 10 Plagues Finger Puppets - Act out the story of the Passover with 10 plagues finger puppets from Tori Avey. You can download the color printout or the coloring sheet version.
November brings with it images of families and friends sitting tableside celebrating Thanksgiving along with lines of shoppers out the door looking for the best deals at every store. Children take time creating long lists filled with possible Hanukah presents. So the big question is: how do you focus on all the great things you have during this time? The answer is simple: by practicing gratitude.
Heilicher alumna Julia Birnberg (Heilicher ‘12) is no stranger to Jewish community leadership. A rising senior at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, she has already distinguished herself as a pro-Israel student activist and campus leader. We had the opportunity to interview Julia this past summer about her activism and how Heilicher assisted in shaping her Jewish identity.
Ms. Divine loves being a teacher at Heilicher, especially a math teacher. From designing summer camps, to building with noodles Ms. Divine knows how to make math fun.
