Passover Seder Plate Kids’ Craft
The Passover Seder is a feast that marks the beginning of this Jewish holiday. You’ve got the food ready, the table’s set, and now you’re wondering what to do with the kids? How can you help your young children to join in and celebrate? Creating a Seder placemat is a crafty way to keep the kids’ interested and help them to better understand the holiday at hand.
- 8×10-inch or larger card stock paper
- Craft felt
- School glue
- Cut the paper into a circle. If regular-sized card stock paper is too small, swap in poster board. Your child can also use a paper plate.
- Draw each item that belongs on the Seder plate. This includes the shankbone, egg, bitter herbs, vegetable (karpas) and sweet haroset.
- Use the felt to add some texture. Cut colorful felt into pieces that match a few of the items on the plate (or all of them!).
- Glue the felt onto the Seder plate.
- Add extra embellishments (on the felt) with the markers.
Even though you can’t use the plate to put real food on, it can work as a decorative centerpiece on your holiday table. Another option is to make several, giving one to each guest!
