Seder is often a balancing act. You’re trying to keep your kids engaged while moving the seder along at a pace that even bubby would approve of. Try adding some of these great Seder props to your table. These are simple and cute ways to get your kids excited about the seder.
We’re putting Baby Moshe on the Nile River in this week’s Parsha craft!
I love “Hands On” Museums. Before Seder (even several days before Seder), invite your kids to a Seder Plate Discovery Zone. Encourage them to feel and hold every item that goes on a Seder Plate. How many kids have ever really touched maror? shankbones? Hand out rubber gloves so that they can easily handle maror; let them put on aprons and make charoset using a simple recipe. Show how you broil an egg. You can even have them make their own Seder plates. Ask them to become docents at the Seder and lead a tour around the Seder Plate.

One of the favorite parts of my job is hearing from readers. A quick email, tweet or meeting someone on the street keeps me happy. These brownies come from running into my friend Pesha Fischer at a park. She was so excited to have me try “real brownies.” And she was right! These are a Passover treasure!
