Shabbat Discovery Kit


This interactive guide is designed especially for grandparents and grandchildren (ages 3–8) to use together — either in person or at a distance.

The kit offers ideas and activities to bring Shabbat to life through play, imagination, and hands-on discovery.

The 14 downloadable pages include:

  • Background and ritual for grandparents
  • The Story of the First Shabbat
  • Shabbat activities and challenges (“Days of Creation Challenge” with found objects; “Lunar Time” with sandwich cookies)
  • Movement games (“Lecha Dodi Parade”; “Yoga Shabbat-Style”)
  • Making a “Grandblessing”
  • Challah, grape juice, and besamim (spices) recipes
