Celebrate Shavuot!

Sunday, May 20, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm

Celebrate Shavuot with us at Pretend City! We will celebrate this fun Jewish holiday and take part in some educational activities as well! This is a celebration where families and communities decorate synagogues and homes with flowers and greenery, and eat lots of cheesecake, blintzes, and other yummy dairy foods.

Times:  Morning Activities: Sensational Story Time @ 11:00am

Afternoon Activities: Shavuot Parade @ 4:50pm

*Scheduled Activity Times are subject to change*

Today’s activities will help your family celebrate this wonderful holiday:

  • Smart Art: Shavuot Floral Crown/Necklace > Stop by the Art Studio to create your very own flowers for a floral crown or necklace to celebrate this holiday.
  • Sensational Story Time (11:00am): Sammy Spider’s First Shavuot > What’s a recipe? Sammy Spider asks his mother as he watches Mrs. Shapiro make blintzes for Shavuot. As Sammy follows the holiday preparations, young readers will learn how the Torah, which was given on Shavuot, is also a recipe for life.
  • Goin’ Home with Shavuot Parade (4:50pm): Torah Tziva > We will march home to Shavuot music in celebration of this holy holiday.

Grown-up Tip: Make classic Cheese Blintzes for your family. By exploring different types of foods, grownups can begin conversations about various traditions and provoke interests in new cultures, places and people. This appreciation for diversity will benefit your child as they begin school with children from all walks of life.
