Passover Craft: Afikoman Bags

Here is another Seder staple that you can have the kids make! The Afikomen bag I made is designed to hold the 3 matzo used in the Seder and then the when one of the children take the portion of the one piece, the Afikomen, to hide it can stay in the bag. Basically, one of the children hides it and the oldest person, usually the Zayday or grandpa has to find it or buy the location off of the children. Just a fun little game to play during the Seder. 
Here is Avery’s that we will use on our late Seder on Thursday!

First you are going to have your child paint a piece of fabric and then I wrote ‘afikomen’ in Hebrew on the that piece of fabric. 
Then you are going to cut out 3 more pieces the same side, I had a different fabric for the bottom than the inside, but it doesn’t really matter. 
Then I hemmed the top of all the pieces.
Then you are going to layer all the pieces together in this order and sew around the edge. First lay down the two lining pieces face up, then add the painted piece face up on top of that and then last lay the back piece face down on the very top.
Turn it rightside out and you are done!

    This is great! I will definitely have to do this with my son next year. We are a dual-holiday household too, and it’s so great to find someone else with ideas for Passover crafts! I just posted two on my blog this past week; one’s a Seder Symbol centerpiece, and the other was some Star of David placecard/pins. I did both of them with the help of my 2 year old son. I’d love for you to stop by and see them if you’re interested! PS- I’m your newest follower.
