Passover, the English term for Pesach, is a Jewish holiday that celebrates and remembers the Jewish exodus from Egypt. Passover is celebrated for 8 days (some 7). Families tell the story of the exodus, and avoid all leavened grain products. A seder plate is a common craft during Passover, which contains the symbolic foods of Passover. Below are some of our favorites, but be sure to check out all of our Passover crafts for kids!
