Passover Felt Seder Plate

It can be very frustrating finding great toys for children for Jewish holidays, especially for Passover. There are a few sets you can purchase online (wooden or felt), but it’s usually expensive and not always in good quality. I ended up deciding to make it my self, but keep it simple.

It really is super easy to make – you can sew or glue, use templates or cut it as you go. Either way – it will be fast, leave you enough time for holiday prep, give you the chance to talk about the Seder with your children, and keep them busy and happy.

You will need:

  • Two 12″X12″ felt sheets (You can also find it at Joann and Michael’s – they don’t always have 12″x12″, but they do have bigger ones you can use)
  • Three 12″X12″ brown felt sheets
  • One 9″X11″ felt sheet for the circles
  • A few small pieces of colorful felt – this set is really awesome, and gives you lots of colors for future use, and it is very inexpensive.
  • Felt glue, but you can also sew it instead – just have your needles and thread or sewing machine ready!
  • Scissors
  • Printable template

Directions:

Cut 2 large circles from the 12″X12″ felt sheets (Any size 11″ or more would be fine – just use the biggest plate you have).

Cut 6 small circles (See template or trace a glass).

Glue or sew the small circles into one of the big ones.

Cut the egg, lettuce leaf, shank bone, horseradish, parsley, and Charoset (see template). For the Charoset I just used scraps of felt and used fabric glue to attach them.

Cut 3 brown circles or squares (use another plate 🙂 – any size about an inch smaller than the big one will be fine) – You can add some sewing in brighter thread to give it more like a Matzah look, or you purchase a Matzah fabric (how awesome is that?!), but it will be great as is.

Sew or glue the 2 large circles together half way to leave enough room for the matzahs to fit inside.

 

AS SIMPLE AS THAT.
Xx, Sarah
