Passover Seder Steps Follow-Along from JewishHolidaysInABox.com
- March 31, 2014
-- Just released by JewishHolidaysInABox.com, the Passover Seder Steps Follow-Along
is the new game / activity / learning resource designed for families with children 3 and up to help make the Seder more interactive, more fun, more engaging for all. Each set available from amazon.com contains five gloss-coated cards and five red pawns, inviting players to move from step 1 through step 15, following the 15 steps in the Passover Haggadah.
Designed to be exciting for toddlers to tweens, each step features a large number, the name of the step, its meaning (i.e., what action accompanies that step), and an iconic picture explaining it.
An additional baker’s dozen of images are tucked around the board to add interest and to help spark other discussions. Parents can ask younger children to find the candles or baby Moses in a basket. For older children, parents can ask what each symbol represents. What is the pillow for? Who is that woman dancing in the desert?
The Passover Seder Steps activity also provides ideas for how to use it before the Seder as a learning tool and as an art activity.
Durable and reusable, the cards and pawns are packaged in a re-sealable translucent envelope for easy storage.
Also available as a digital download, the Passover Seder Steps Follow-Along ( http://www.jewishholidaysinabox.com/jewish-holiday-tradit...
) will be helpful to families who have celebrated Passover for years, as well as families newer to the tradition.
