For 2010, Passover (Pesach) begins at sundown on March 30 and lasts through April 6. Help kids celebrate this important Jewish holiday with crafts that are fun for the whole family:

Passover seder placemat: Teach kids about the traditional Passover feast and help them better understand what they'll find on their plates with this simple craft made from foam baord and construction paper.

Matzoh cover: A matzoh cover is a piece of cloth traditionally used to cover a piece of unleavened bread (or matzoh) before the Passover Seder meal. Whip up this colorful cover with felt and fabric paint.  

Parting of the Red Sea: This craft wins some serious Passover points for creativity. And it's a great way to teach kids about the biblical story in which Moses parts the Red Sea to allow the freed Jewish slaves to escape from Egypt. 


Kiddush cups: Make kids a part of the celebration by helping them decorate these cute kiddush cups.
