Passover Fun for Kids

The seder is fun, but what to do the rest of the day?

By

We slave away to make Passover perfect, with lots of cooking, cleaning, and preparations. It takes a lot to setup the seder commemorating the Exodus and Israelite liberation from slavery under pharaoh thousands of years ago.

Preparing for the holiday can be exhausting for parents, so what is a child to do while mom and dad are occupied or out of energy to play? How do you keep your little ones busy during the oft-lengthy seder?

We've done the legwork and collected websites with fun activities and ideas to make Passover fun and exciting, and maybe just a little educational.
