No matter how your family celebrates Passover, pay the time-honored traditions their due with these fun ideas and recipes for the Seder and beyond.

Setting the Table

Teach the kids about Passover Seder by creating tableware fit just for them. Gather up the materials for these place settings from discount, art, and party supply stores and make them a few days beforehand. Painting the elements -- such as the bitter herb and the roasted egg -- on the Seder plate might just be the perfect segue into a mini lesson on the upcoming holiday. Pour four cups' worth of kosher grape juice into these decorative glasses!
