DESTINATION: Jerusalem Activity Page

Scroll to the bottom of the page for our printable offerings!

We have curated some fun inspiration for your journey through the Holy Land — Jerusalem, Israel!

A city of tradition, religion, and history, but also, increasingly, of modern culture and heritage, it is a city with so much to offer that you could spend years here and still not see everything.

Decoration Ideas

Table Decorations

Use soft fabrics and make a marketplace.  Have baskets of fresh fruits and vegetables.  Use blankets and pillows tossed around.  Decorative vases, stones, rugs, etc. can make it feel more authentic.

And then, there’s food!

Israeli food isn’t just sustenance, it is a part of history and religion. Make sure your meal includes one or more of the following:

  • Pita bread
  • Kababs
  • Falafel
  • Baklava
  • Hummus
  • Bagels
  • halva (tahini)
  • Olives
  • Pickles
  • shawarma ( pita stuffed with meat and topped with tomato, cucumber, hummus, pickled turnips other great items)
  • Israeli salad is a simple chopped mixture of tomato, cucumber, onion, bell pepper, olive oil, lemon juice, and fresh herbs.

Wanna make it fun? Try using google translate and put the Hebrew translation and/or how to pronounce the food on the back of your food cards!

Passport and Stamp

Keep up with all the fun destinations by printing this passport booklet. Each destination will have a stamp the resident can color to cut and glue to the passport.
