Passover Art for Kids with Matzah
You make a gingerbread house during Christmas. So why not make a matzah house for Passover? Celebrate the Jewish holiday with this fun kids’ food craft. Along with an actual mini house, the kiddos can also try some of these other artsy matzah ideas. Oh, and the best part is — the family can eat the finished product!
Use sheets of matzah in the same way that you’d use gingerbread to construct a house with four walls and a sloped roof. Instead of frosting, smooth on jelly or peanut butter as the mortar that holds the construction together. Decorate with fruit jellies, coconut macaroons, chocolate pieces or other holiday treats.
The kids can make their own spring flowers — out of matzah. Think of this like a torn paper collage. But instead of using torn or cut paper, the kids can use broken pieces of matzah. Puzzle together a flower on a tray or large-sized plate. Decorate it with colorful gum drops, jellies or other treats in spring hues.
Again, break apart pieces of matzah to use as parts of the ‘picture’. Your child can piece them together to form a portrait of each family member. Layer the pieces of matzah on top of each other to make a nose, eyes and a mouth.
