Drum circles, arts and crafts geared for the younger set

Throngs of families fill Yerba Buena Gardens for Israel’s day to shine in San Francisco. From infants in strollers, to toddlers, to school-age young children, all should find something (even if it’s giant bubbles floating in the air) to keep them happy and engaged for hours.

Gabriel Harris of Rhythm Village performs on the drums.

Be’chol Lashon (In Every Tongue), the S.F.-based organization that advocates for the growth and diversity of the Jewish people, is once again organizing the “kids and family zone,” with performances and ongoing arts and crafts activities.

Drum circles and dance workshops led by Rhythm Village are slated for 1:15, 2:45 and 4:15 p.m.

Several hands-on projects that kids can work on and take home will continue through the afternoon. They include making potpourri sachets, crafting block prints of bikurim (spring harvest) in Israel and China, fashioning Mexican folk art paper flowers, creating tzedakah boxes and more.
