Easy Preschool Passover Crafts
Ten Plague Placemats
- 10 White Construction Papers
- Crayons or Markers
- Watercolor Paints (red, blue, black, and green)
- Paint Brushes
- Red Tissue Paper
- Stickers of Frogs, Cows, Stars, Animals and number 1s
- Stamp Pad
- Red Glitter or Puffy Paint
- Kosher Salt
- Clear Contact Paper
- The first step would be to instruct the preschooler to place one of the white construction papers on a flat surface.
- Now, ask him/her to use red watercolor paints to create a river of blood at one side of the paper. In case the child does not know how to paint, you can ask him to use crayons, sketch pens or even red tissue paper for the same.
- Once the child is finished with the first placemat, ask him or her to start making the second one. Instruct him/her to draw lily pads and paste frog stickers on the construction paper, which would reflect the second plague.
- The third placemat would be one that shows lice. Ask the child to use a stamp pad and finger print of the lice bodies. Once this is done, use a marker to make the legs of the lice.
- As for the fourth placemat, instruct the kid to paste stickers of animals on the construction paper, reflecting wild beasts. Help the kid with the placement of the stickers to beautify the look of the placemat.
- The fifth placemat will reflect the cattle disease. Since this would be a little difficult to portray, the best would be to ask the kid the cow stickers to glue upside down.
- To depict hail in the sixth placemat, help the little one to use watercolors and paint black brushstrokes. Once it gets dry, dribble glue and sprinkle with salt.
- Now, ask him/her to draw pictures of people. Once that is done, use red glitter or puffy paint to mark the boils on their bodies, thereby representing the seventh plague.
- For the eighth placemat, make the preschooler draw the sky with a black crayon or marker. Paste down star stickers.
- As for the ninth plague, which is the locusts, make the child draw or paint a field of grass. With a stamp pad, fingerprint the locust bodies and use a marker to draw the legs and wings.
- For the last placemat, which reflects the smitten firstborn, ask the preschooler to paste number 1 stickers and cross them off with a big 'X'.
- Once all the placemats are dry, laminate or cover each of them with clear contact paper.
- Clay Garden Pot, any size
- Tiles, Beads, and other Mosaic Pieces
- Glue, poured into a dish
- Craft Sticks
- Plastic or Glass Cup, for inserting inside the clay pot
- Ribbon Trim
- Firstly, ask the preschooler to run the clay pot upside down and place it on a flat surface.
- Now, ask the child to dip a craft stick into the glue and apply it all over the pot.
- Starting from the tip of the pot, ask the child to cover it with the tiles, adding more glue wherever necessary.
- There are sure to be gaps in between two tiles. To fill them, instruct the child to glue beads and other smaller mosaic pieces out there.
- Once this is done, allow the pot to dry, so that each of the pieces sticks to the pot.
- Now, turn the pot right side up and insert the plastic or glass cup that will hold the charoset at the Seder table.
- The last step would be to ask the kid to tie a ribbon around the edge of the glass.
