Passover Activities for Kids

Make sure you remember the kids when planning your Passover seder. While the fine china and customs are certainly an important part of the celebration, Passover is very much about recounting the exodus story and sharing that history with the children. In fact, children are a big part of this celebration and should be encouraged to ask questions!


These crafty Passover activities we found will go a long way in helping to share the Passover story with kids, but they'll also offer them an opportunity to celebrate in a fun, festive and creative way.

This first Passover craft and activity for kids will have them creating their very own goblets with which to drink the four cups of wine/grape juice during the seder. Make sure they make one just for Elijah and leave it at his place setting around the seder table.

Passover treats are another fun way to get the kiddos involved and ready to celebrate. While we enjoy chocolate bark and Matzoh Brei as much as the next person, we think the kids will really enjoy these Passover treats a lot more. S'mores are always a hit, but we never thought to make them with matzo! Everything about this Passover treat is yummy and we bet even the adults will demand it become a staple around the holiday.

If the kids prefer to play with their food a bit, and you're fine with that, consider crafting a home out of matzo and other assorted treats. Similar to the holiday gingerbread house, this matzo house makes for a great centerpiece at your Passover seder - something the kids will certainly be thrilled about when they see it!

Recounting the story of the ten plagues might prove a challenge with young children. While there's certainly no threat to them, the plagues are definitely scary and intimidating once you understand what they meant. Encourage the children at your Passover seder to have courage with this cute Passover craft. Made with basic supplies you probably already have on hand, this little frog is a great Passover activity for kids to enjoy - whether you let them help craft the frogs or just allow them to play with them!

We said it before and we'll say it again; the Passover celebration encourages children to ask questions and learn about their faith. This little foam board seder plate is the perfect way to get the kids involved and engaged.
