Commercialism and marketing always centers around Easter in the March and early April months, but often times, Passover is not celebrated enough. This year, Passover, a Jewish holiday that celebrates the week-long celebration of the Jewish Exodus from Egypt, Jewish families and friends celebrate Passover with a seder, or ritual meal, during which the story of Moses and the Exodus is retold through words and symbolic foods. Traditionally, after the seder meal is eaten, the family patriarch hides a piece of matzoh, known as the afikomen, as a symbolic dessert. The child who finds it receives a small prize. In this variation, each child makes his or her own bag, which is filled with a piece of matzoh. The bags are hidden, and each child must find his or her own bag to get a prize.

Make your own afikomen bag that is personalized to the children and family celebrating Passover at your home. See below for this fun kids craft!
