I’m a Grandmother, Not a Babysitter

Posted on April 23rd, 2017
BY SHYRLA PAKULA for Kveller 


I’m not a gooey, super-affectionate type. I’m into competence and capability and problem solving. I have had to teach myself to be less Dr. Spock (as my children used to refer to me) and more Mr. Rogers, so to speak. I have a profession, and while I’ve practiced less than full-time since becoming a mother–it still keeps me pretty busy.

Bring out the builder in your tots this Passover! Though the holiday teaches us that the Jews had to flee their homes, this fun (and mostly edible) craft will have your lil ones building a new kind of shelter for the holiday. While looking for some holiday activities for kids, I came across Martha Stewart's directions for a Matzo home and knew it would make for a fun afternoon. Not only can children get involved in building and decorating this dwelling, it makes for a great centerpiece during your Seder (just don't get mad when the kids start eating the decorations while waiting for their meal!). See how to make it when you click through!
