When I was in 2nd grade, I remember eating latkes. Ms. Masolo was my teacher and she was pretty much amazing. I remember making a huge tissue paper rainbow on one of the bulletin boards. The kind where you have little squares of paper, bunch them around a pencil, dip in glue, and then place on the board. We all thought it was so cool, and it was.
Latkes were a hands-on activity we had when we were studying Hanukkah. I thought it was so cool to make them as an 8-year-old and they still taste amazing. It really is a great recipe to make with kids!
