Creating a Seder plate with nonperishable items will give your children the opportunity to prepare for the Seder through play, reinforcing the Pesach story and the Seder experience in their young minds.


You will need:

  • Fimo clay in white, brown, red, cream, and dark and light green (found at Michaels and other craft stores)
  • 1 heavy-duty plastic plate
  • 6 round stickers
  • Optional: a second heavy-duty plastic plate and a sheet of clear plastic paper

Directions:

  1. Stick the stickers on the plate to indicate where each item belongs. (Alternatively, you can draw your own circles.)
  2. Mold the clay into the shapes of the Seder plate items. Bake the clay, following the instructions on the packet, and let it cool.
  3. Optional: To add a cover, cut a large circle in the center of a second paper plate and cover with a clear plastic sheet. Paint the outer rim of the lid and plate silver.
  4. Your kids will enjoy playing with this long-lasting Seder plate in the weeks leading up to Pesach, as well as at the Seder itself.

Although your instructions say to use Fimo clay, I'd like to point out that Play-Doh brand clay contains chometz and should not be used on Passover. Reply
