Child Made Crossing the Sea Mural

Crossing the Sea made by kindergartnersI really enjoyed this collaborative project in my local kindergarten. The children created a mural of crossing the sea or the splitting of the sea after the Jews left Egypt. This was one of the learning projects they did leading up to Passover. They used different techniques to create the two sections of the split sea and then each drew pictures of themselves. Their pictures were then hung between the split sea. I love how their teacher showed them the concept of: “In Every Generation Consider as if God took me out of Egypt.”

The mural is bright, colorful and fun. I always enjoyed the imagery of the splitting of the sea. I have a few interpretations of my own in the Birkat Chaverim shop. At one time I made a moveable card, splitting of the sea. Maybe one year we’ll repeat that as a project here.

Other projects that the children made included pyramids and baby Moshes, which always go over well at this age. So do making brooms and matzot.

Did you see any fun projects this year for Passover?
