I love Passover. I love my parents’ Seder, which is spiritual and intellectual and uses Noam Zion and David Dishon’s alternative “A Different Night: The Family Participation Haggadah.” I love my husband’s family’s Seder, which is filled with warmth and history and uses the traditional Goldberg Haggadah. But now that I have a spirited, hilarious, and curious 3-year-old daughter, I wanted to make sure that this year, she, and her similarly aged cousins, were engaged, entertained, and educated about the Passover holiday at our Seders as well.
What started as a packet of materials for our families has become far greater in scope and even more meaningful. With the help of friends and community members on Facebook, and parenting bloggers around the country, we have put together a TC Jewfolk FREE e-book: “A Playful Passover: A Toddler and Preschool-Friendly Passover Seder Kit of Crafts and Activities to Engage, Entertain, & Educate Young Kids.”
There is no wrong way to use this e-book. Bring it along as a supplement to your family’s traditional Seder, use it to create your own Seder, or choose from among the fun activities described below an inspiring activity for an otherwise quiet Passover afternoon. You will see that this e-book is organized into three sections: (1) Before the Seder (Mostly Edible), (2) During the Seder, and (3) To Buy (Optional), plus two appendices.
Nu, so what are you waiting for? Click here to download it already, share the link, and print it out by the dozen. After Pesach, do us a solid and let us know how you used the e-book and what it meant to you by commenting below, on Facebook, or by emailing me at Leora [at] TCJewfolk.com.
Chag Sameach! Happy Passover!
