Now is the time to start prepping for the Seder night. As father’s we need to be ready with plenty of things to say and activities. If you want a meaningful Seder get started now. A few things you can do to get ready:
- Buy awesome Hagaddah’s with cool pictures like the one I listed in the post previously. If you order soon they will arrive to your home with plenty of time for you to scan through them ahead of time. Start picking out the main areas you want to focus on during the Passover night, ask yourself ‘what will connect most with my kids.’
- If your kids like art try setting 15-20 minutes a day with them in making their own mini Hagaddah that they can show off at the Seder night. To keep it simple, think about the 10 plagues. Have each kid make a mini booklet with each page depicting a certain plague. You can download pictures of the internet or make up your own. Give them responsibilities for the Passover night, it can make it so much more enjoyable.
The main idea here is to start thinking ahead, how do you want the night to go, if you want your kids to stick around- you are going to need the tools. But remember it’s okay if they aren’t into it the way you’d like them to. Keep up your positive role model influence and let them see how much you put in the extra effort to make it something special.
