A Seder Plate for Passover
Large white paper plates, white cupcake liners, green acrylic paint, paintbrushes, craft glue, green and silver glitter, black felt-tip marker, misc. decorative items like small stickers, plastic gems, and ribbon
This is a great way for kids to learn what items are included on a traditional Seder plate. Start by painting a large, sturdy white paper plate green, to commemorate that Passover is a spring holiday. Next, paint the inside bottoms of 5 white cupcake liners liners in the same shade of green. Wait for all to dry, and then take a thin felt-tip black marker and write the names of the 5 Passover symbols, onto the center of each cupcake liner, one name per liner. (The symbols are as follows: Charoset, Bitter herbs, Greens, Egg and Shankbone.) Then glue the cupcake liners around the perimeter of the plate, leaving lots of room in the center to decorate. Once the glue has set and the cupcake liners are securely fastened, you can begin decorating. Write Seder Plate with glue and add a few random dots, also with glue. Then cover the glue writing with a combination of green and silver glitter. You can also decorate with stickers, plastic gems, ribbon, or anything else that grabs your imagination.
