Have some old t-shirts? washcloths? bed sheets? Create a fun Afikomen cloth to hide the special matzah in, or a fun Matzah cover for your Shabbat dinner this Passover!
What you need:
3 small bowls
Large piece of cloth (t-shirt, handkerchief, kitchen towel, etc)
Crayons What you do:
1. Write the word AFIKOMEN or MATZAH in the middle of the cloth. Press hard with the crayon. Draw Passover designs around the edges.
2. Put a cup of water in each bowl. Add a few drops of a different food coloring to each bowl.
3. Twist a corner of the cloth and dip it into one color. Squeeze it dry. Twist another corner and dip it into a different color. Squeeze it dry. Keep Twisting and dipping and squeezing until the cloth is covered. Dry flat.
And voila! You have created your very own Afikomen/Matzah cloth for a colorfully fun Passover!
