This week, we have a double parsha. The basic idea of each of these parshiot is tahara (ritual purity) and tuma (ritual impurity). We learn about the mikva, laws after giving birth, circumcising an 8 day old son, and “spiritual leprosy” (tzaarat) of the house, garment, or person.

Yikes. It’s a tough week to make interesting to kids – without being gross (leprosy) or too involved (other topics)!

Links: Here are the Aish TM, Torah.org, and Chabad pages on Tazria Metzora. Here are some coloring sheets and a fun video from Itche Kadoozy (my older boys love this silly series).

Whew! This one is a tough week for hands on kids projects. What ideas would you add?
