Here's a great passover craft to do with the kids! Add some fun to your Passover table this year with this no-sew felt afikomen bag, that's really an envelope! And this project is really simple enough that slightly older kids could do much of it themselves, while younger ones can help plan the design. I have to admit, every year we've actually just used a dishtowel to wrap the afikomen, horrors of horrors! But thanks to this little crafty assignment I did for the folks over at kveller.com, we'll actually have an afikomen bag this year! I do love an elegant Pesach table, but since the whole essence of the Passover seder is to re-tell the story for the children, I do think that some fun elements are certainly in order.
While I chose to decorate the front of our envelope with the wild red poppies that are in bloom right now, the back has the more traditional imagery of the four cups of wine. Of course you really can't go wrong with this one, just about anything would look cute!
For a complete tutorial, check out my afikomen bag post over at kveller.com. And stay tuned, I do believe there's a matzo cover about to be created as well as some more crafts for the Passover seder! And those colorful wine glasses were a passover craft from last year, which you can find here. Tick tock tick tock, oh I do believe I hear the passing of time— Passover is just two weeks away and there's still so much left to do, gotta run!
