Passover Freedom Mural

Discuss what freedom means to you and your family and how this principle is celebrated in the Passover season. Have the children find pictures in magazines or draw pictures that represent freedom. Create a mural on poster board using these pictures, markers, and some sticker letters. You could also search the Internet for coloring pages to use in your mural.

Level: Easy

Time involved: One to two hours

Materials:

  • Pictures from magazines or magic markers (See step 1.)
  • White glue
  • Poster board
  • Sticker letters
  1. Cut pictures from magazines, or draw and color your own pictures that represent freedom to you. For example, you might choose a picture of a wild bird, a warm home, or an entertainment event.

  2. Glue these pictures onto the poster board. Use sticker letters to spell out the words that mean freedom to you and your kids. For example, you might spell out freedom of speech, ideas, choice of professions, or education.

You could make this an on-going family project during Passover and add to it as the days pass. You also might want to divide the poster in half and place traditional Passover symbols of freedom on one half and modern-day symbols of what this freedom means to you personally on the other half.
