With an abundance of resources, activities, and ideas, we can still have fun and build community with other jkid families near and far! Check this page for updates to explore fun and engaging things to do with your family.

If you have ideas for other things we can do, let us know!

jkidphilly’s goal is to connect and engage families raising young Jewish children across Greater Philadelphia. A little enforced time inside won’t stop us!

Even very young children can help with easy kitchen tasks and it’s amazing what older kids can do. Cooking and baking can provide opportunities for learning as well: Measuring helps with math skills; introducing foods from other cultures can aid studies of geography, history, and literature; reading recipes is a fun alternative to reading textbooks; being in the kitchen together is also a way to spend time with your kids

For kids who are less than enthusiastic about learning to cook/bake, it might be helpful to start with videos about kids who are having fun in the kitchen. There are many such videos available on YouTube….these are just a few.
