Passover Matzo Cooking No-Bake Cooking Ideas for Kids

PB and Matzo
Start this kids’ cooking activity with a math lesson. Give your child a full sheet of matzo and ask them to divide it into two equal halves. Older kids can divide the sheet into other fractions, such as thirds or quarters. Help your child to build fine motor skills by letting them smooth peanut butter on one piece of matzo and jelly on another, using a butter knife or spoon. Press the sandwich together, making the two halves a whole. If your child wants to create their own extra-special sandwich, they can add sliced fruit or other ingredients of their choosing.
Create the sweet stacker, using two pieces of matzo, chocolate and a marshmallow. Have your child play the role of structural engineer, stack the ingredients into a structure that won’t topple over. Make one layer or several levels of s’more sandwiches. Microwave the finished product for a few seconds to melt the chocolate and marshmallow. Let the s’more stack cool before eating.
Take your matzo on-the-go! Your child can work on their fine motor skills, shredding matzo with their hands. Shred a piece of matzo into dime-sized bits over a large mixing bowl. Add pretzel pieces, raisins, carob nibs, shredded coconut or anything else your child wants to create the perfect holiday trail mix.
