5 Ways to Make Passover Dinner More Kid-Friendly

Passover Seder has a set structure dictated by the Haggadah (the guide to prayers, songs, stories and events). Kids often get antsy, but we’ve found ways to make it more fun.

Bag of Plagues

These tiny toys illustrate the ten plagues that occurred in Ancient Egypt. There’s a variety available at the craft store (or you can make your own), so when you get to the plague portion of the Haggadah, you can act out the events. Fair warning: you’ll be finding plastic locusts for days.

Make Your Own Haggadah 

Let the kids use what they’ve learned in Hebrew school to make a prayer book of events that they can color during dinner.

Little Presents for Everyone

Make the search for afikomen (the hidden matzoh) even more fun by hiding a piece for each kid to find so everyone gets a present—Beanie Boos and blind bags are sure to be hits.

Felt Seder Plates 

If you’ve got picky eaters, making the bitter herbs (a nod to the dark history of Jews in ancient Egypt) out of felt is the way to go. The kids can follow along without having to sample the “gross” stuff.

Seder Bingo

Take words from the​ Haggadah and make a bingo game for the kids. Make sure you’ve got fun prizes or a special kosher for Passover dessert for the winners.
