Passover Afikoman Craft for Kids

Passover craft

As part of the Passover Seder families hide the afikoman – a piece of matzah that is saved for after the meal. Traditionally, the afikoman is wrapped in a cloth or napkin and placed aside during dinner. Adding to the holiday fun, the adults can hide the wrapped piece of matzah for the children to find. Make hiding the afikoman even more fun and have the kids create their own Passover ‘napkin’ to hold the matzah. How? Grab some craft felt and make a reusable afikoman holder to take out every year on the Passover holiday!

Materials:

  • Craft felt (choose a few different colors)
  • Cardboard (reuse the front of the matzah box)
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut the cardboard into a square. Size the square so that it is twice the size of the matzah you plan on hiding.
  2. Fold the cardboard in half, book style.
  3. Cut a piece of craft felt, making it slightly larger than the cardboard square.
  4. Glue the felt to the front of the cardboard. Leave a bit of room in the center where the fold is.
  5. Cut a few more pieces of felt. Create stripes or shapes.
  6. Glue the felt shapes onto the front, creating a design or pattern.
  7. Let the glue dry overnight.

Wrap the matzah pieces in a paper towel and tuck them inside (the felt design is on the outside of your holiday craft).
