Passover Activities for Kids of All Ages
Celebrate Passover with these fun family crafts and activities. Whether you’re looking for a way to make a holiday display or just need an entertaining activity to help your child learn more about Passover, these ideas are ideal!
Forget about gingerbread houses. Matzo houses are where it’s at. Use flat sheets of the unleavened bread to make the basic structure and a roof. Attach the matzo with a mortar of peanut butter, jelly or both. Decorate the outside of the house with your child’s favorite holiday candies.
Make a paper Passover seder plate using poster board and paint. Your child can draw the circle-shaped plate onto the paper and cut it out. Next, give your tempera paints and a thin paintbrush. They can paint everything that goes on the plate—including the shank bone, egg, bitter herbs, karpas and haroset.
Before hiding the Afikomen, help your child to make a special bag to put it in. Punch holes around the edge of an 8×10-inch piece of craft felt. Fold the felt and have your child thread yarn or a thin ribbon through. Place the Afikomen (matzo) inside and tie the yarn or ribbon shut.
