Kids’ math Activities for Shavuot

kids' crafts

The Jewish holiday Shavuot celebrates the giving of the Torah and the first grain harvest of the new year. The festival falls 50 days after Passover, and the period in between (from the second night of Passover to Shavuot) is known as the omer. Counting down the 49 days from the second night of Passover to Shavuot is a fun way to involve your child in the holiday. It’s also an easy way to sneak in a few math lessons while helping your little learner to better understand Shavuot.

Check out these kid-friendly ways to count down from Passover to Shavuot!

Crafty Calendar

Help your child to create their own artsy calendar from one holiday to the other. Use a ruler and markers to make a 50-day grid on half a sheet of poster board paper. Have your child draw a holiday picture at the top of the calendar (the other half of the poster board). Mark each day with a check or have your child color in the grid square.

Sticker Chart

Craft a sticker chart by painting a piece of card stock paper with a holiday theme. Your child can press a special star sticker onto a handmade chart to mark each day. As the days go on, count each star.

Number Cards

Create your own deck of 50 cards. Use index cards and crayons, writing each number on one card. Every day have your child find the corresponding number to match. Stack the used cards in order to remember what day you’re on.
