Simple Messianic Seder (Passover) Meal For Kids


My husband and I enjoy the tradition of observing the Passover meal as Christ did during the Last Supper. We love the symbolism and giving our children object lessons pertaining to the Gospel. It has become something our entire family looks forward to during Easter.
Easy Seder (Passover) Meal For Kids

Hosting a Passover meal for your family can be a simple yet blessed affair. You can make substitutions using things you may have already in your home. For instance, you may wish to use a plastic or boiled egg in place of the roasted egg. Some choose to have a beet stand in for the shank bone while our family uses a chicken bone. Europeans have used potatoes in place of the greens in the past as parsley and lettuce were not readily available at this time.

We put pillows all around our coffee table and light candles as we recline around our coffee table during our meal. 
We have 2 Seder plates, one silver and one children's Seder plate (both available on Amazon). If you do not have a Seder plate, simply label a paper plate with a sharpie or print this page or this one and paste it to a paper plate. In the past I have used this book:
The Christian Passover Seder (Not an affiliated link). This year I will keep things simple as we have our newborn and interruptions are highly probable :) We plan to have the children color this free printable while explaining what each object means (below) and read corresponding passages from the Bible.

(easy recipe below)
Unleavened bread because of the quick exit from Egypt. The pierced matzah also symbolizes the broken body of Christ, pierced for our transgressions and by Whose stripes we are healed.
Luke 22:19
Grape juice
The four cups represent the four promises of redemption found in Exodus 6:5-7.
The cups are also representative of the four letters in the unspeakable Name of God.

The Messianic Passover symbol of grape juice is Christ's blood.
Luke 22:20
Bitter herbs
(Horseradish) Maror
Bitter tears of slavery in Egypt
(easy recipe below)
Represents the mortar used to build during the Israelites' slavery in Egypt.
Shank bone
(or a chicken bone) zeroah
Zeroah means arm in Hebrew and symbolizes the Arm of God and the sacrificial lamb (paschal).
Sacrificial offering, springtime and renewal
Freshness of Spring
Dish of salt water
Sweat and Tears of Slavery
Scripture readings: Exodus 12 and Matthew 26:17-30.
At the end we sing a hymn as Christ and the Disciples did.
The song of praise known as the Hallell was comprised of six Psalms, the 113th, 114th, 115th, 116th, 117th, and 118th. Our family sings Psalm 118:24, "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it."



2 Easy Recipes 
2½ cups organic whole-wheat flour
½ cup melted butter
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 cup warm water
Mix and knead all of the ingredients then let the dough rest about ten minutes. Roll out and cut dough into desired number of pieces. Roll out into a flat rectangle and pierce with a fork forming long stripes along the tortilla with a fork. Cook on a hot, buttered pan or griddle until golden brown and crisp.
1/2 cup to 1 cup of nutbutter depending on your consistency preference (peanut,  almond or sunbutter) 
One finely chopped peeled apple
1/4 cup chopped raisins or craisins 
We spread this on our Matzo.
Here are a few other pages I have found helpful when setting up or Passover Meal in the past. 

Our family believes this is a way we can be faithful to the Scripture in Deuteronomy which says,
18 You shall therefore impress these words of mine on your heart and on your soul; and you shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontals on your forehead. 19 You shall teach them to your sons, talking of them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road and when you lie down and when you rise up. 20 You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates, 21 so that your days and the days of your sons may be multiplied on the land which the Lord swore to your fathers to give them, as long as the heavens remain above the earth.
Deuteronomy 11:18-21
We hope you find these resources helpful and are blessed if you decide to adopt this tradition as your own. Many blessings to you this Easter.
Grace and peace,
Adoring Family
