Preparing for Pesach

The children in Shalom Chaverim (“Welcome, Friends!”) spent time getting to know the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of Pesach this week.


Together, we explored the question– “What do we see on the Seder plate?” The children examined real Seder plates, and incorporated them into their play. They also explored the symbols on the plate in sensory play, in stories, and in song.

The children’s careful exploration of the items on the plate continued over at the art table, where they set to work painting their own Seder plates.

The children observed some items they were familiar (such as an egg!) and other objects that were less familiar.

Then, we set out to examine some of the real items from the Seder plate. The children worked together to make their own charoset– which they immediately devoured!
