Passover started last Monday evening. We hosted both Seders, big family dinners which occur on the first 2 evenings of the holiday. One of the readings in the Seder is about the 4 types of children, one of which is "The Wise Child." The Wise Child loves Passover and asks lots of questions about the holiday to learn as much as possible. In addition to asking questions and participating in the discussions, my children also helped with all the cleaning and cooking.
I always feel like my son Zachary is "the wise child," but this year he did even more. My husband was out of town the days prior to Passover, and Zachary helped me with every aspect of cleaning the house, getting ready for Passover, and cooking. Of course, he especially helped with making desserts. During the Seder, he had an extra book with commentary and brought in additional discussion items from time to time. My husband and I were particularly proud of him.
For this layout, I used this sketch from Sketch-n-Scrap.
Although Benjamin helped with a lot of things, he was most proud and thrilled with these Chocolate-Coconut Meringue cookies that he made for the second Seder.
For this layout, I used this sketch from ScrapMuch? and Drill #29 from S.W.A.T. (second row: brads, stamp, 3 pictures, number die-cuts). Both pages use Basic Grey's Spice Market collection.
