Making Seder Spectacular (it’s not as hard as you think)

The deck is stacked against our kids. The Seder starts late at night — often after a day where we are too busy to pay attention to them. Our kids haven’t eaten good meals throughout the day (burn your chametz! eat no matza!). They are overtired, a little bored and overwhelmed. Then we ask them to sit at a Seder table for hours on end with no food. Not a great plan. Here are a few ways to make a Seder super kid friendly:
