It took over eight steps to make them--what patience and follow-through!
Our origami frogs were hoppin' all around!
If you interested in more crafts or activities for children around Passover, you can find the origami idea and more here.

We got a delightful surprise at the end of the day--two lower school students offered to read our silly Passover story The Matzoh Ball Boy.  

Our guest readers and their attentive audience

We haven't finished the story yet, so don't tell us what happened!  Many of the children noticed a certain similarity to the Gingerbread Man stories.  We'll see...
