“Magical sparks” Gabi and Rafael return in this special Shaboom! episode for Passover. Together, they make a hide-and-seek game out of the process of removing chametz (bread and other leavened food) from their cloud. Meanwhile, down on Earth, Ben Plony is gathering chametz – including a forbidden donut! – for a food donation.
Here’s an idea for you to share with your friends and family in preparation for your Passover seders. This activity can be done as a solo journaling exercise, as part of a chavruta (with a study partner), or together as a family.
