Imagine playing delightful games that your great-grandma or great-grandpa played when all the young cousins were gathered together for Pesach! We will play many different games that Jewish children played long ago. Some will involve nuts in their shell (walnuts, Brazil nuts, and hazelnuts). Others will be playful songs or games like hide-and-search/hot-and-cold sprinkled with a bisl (a little) Yiddish. The games will be geared to children ages 4-6, but parents are welcome to listen and learn.
