How to Make Shavuot Special for Kids

No Comments 01 January 2011

By Carol Ungar

1. The counting of the Omer is exciting for kids especially if they’ve counted the whole way through at home or at school. Emphasize this.

2. It’s customary to decorate the home and synagogue with greenery because  on the day that  the Torah was given Mt. Sinai was full of flowers . Send your kids out into the garden to clip flowers and shrubs. Better yet, go out there with them.

3.Kids usually love the Shavuot dairy menu. In addition to blintzes think lasagna, quiche and yogurt soups.

4. Tell the story of Mount Sinai with great  drama. Hachai Press has a wonderful kids book about called  “When the World Was Quiet”  which describes that very special day

5. Talk about what it means to recieve the Torah.

6. Go to the synagogue to hear the Ten Commandments.
