Passover activities for kids

Amazon: Passover Box of Plagues Easter and Passover are the big Springtime holidays around here. And while Easter is well-stocked with crafts and projects, Passover…hm. On Twitter, @liasynthis asks:

Do you have any fun Passover ideas for kids? Everything's so ummm, religious. All I see are toys representing the plagues.

I can't help but giggle when I imagine kids playing with little plush locusts.  (If you're not familiar with the Passover seder, it includes a recitation the ten plagues sent as reinforcement for Moses's request to the pharoh to let his people go).

Here are a few places to start:

Kaboose: Passover: Crafts, activities, recipes and printables. Lots of great items kids can make to use in the seder. Plus a "parting of the Red Sea" craft!

Chabad.org: Passover for Kids: Great place for kids to learn more about Passover, plus plenty of fun stuff to do.

Kosher4Passover: Passover for Kids: Simple list of activities and puzzles. Thanks for the pointer, @NWRugs!

    Love the bottlecap frogs. We have plague finger puppets BTW. :)Lots of fun ideas to decorate a glass for Elijah. We do some egg-themed “Easter” crafts–eggs are for Passover too!

    There’s a Jewish homeschooling Yahoo group called chevra. I can see we’ll get a lot there in the future. People post a bunch of holiday links & stuff.

    Wow! cool!
    I am quite new in passover this year. That’s why looking for something interesting. Really got something special from you here.
    Wishing you a happy Passover.
    You can take a look at this passover message: goo.gl/lFsMZ on this celebration. Very unique one.

    You know, Tiffani — when I read lists like this I try to keep in mind that I don’t have to do everything ALL AT ONCE. It’s sort of like the list is the destination and I’m a few miles away, taking small steps but in the right direction.
