I don’t know about you, but New Year’s Resolutions always make me feel depressed. I mean, you can spend an hour thinking about what you believe is wrong about yourself and make unreachable goals on how to better yourself. Although I may be young, I have had enough New Years pass to recognize that I’ll never be able to suceed at my goals. So, when I was scouring the interwebs, I came across a cool idea that I feel like is a more positive way of going about a New Year. On Buzzfeed it showed this group of people decorating a jar to put strips of paper in throughout the year.
So here is my first craft post… an afikomen bag. For those of you who do not know, afikomen is special matzah. The word itself means dessert and the passover seder is not finished until the afikomen, which is hidden, is found usually by the younger kids. The afikomen bag is what holds the matzah so you can hide it.
Now that the little lesson is over…. onto making this. So this is fun to do with your kids but it is easier if you do it with them one on one. This does require a little kid with a needle so be sure to go through with them what not to do with a needle (like poking themselves or others with the sharp point)
All you need is a piece of felt, a tapestry needle, some thread and some sequins or form of decoration and glue to put it on. That’s it!
