Passover For Kids

If you are familiar with the Passover seder, you know that there are many ways to get kids involved, make the retelling of Exodus story into a family-friendly event. But sometimes we still need helpful tips and suggestions. Here are just a few:

For the Seder

  • Go through the  Haggadah with your children before the seder. Ask them to help you find props to bring to the table, such as stuffed animals for the plagues or costume pieces to wear for chracters such as Moses or Miriam.
  • Make kiddish cups (or a cup for Elijah or Miriam) with your kids.
  • Make afikomen covers with your kids, for each of them to use at the seder.
  • Prepare the four questions with your children, in Hebrew or English (or any other language!). You might want to try coming up with additional questions that your children can ask throughout the night, in addition to or instead of the standard four.
