How to make your own Seder plates.

Two years ago, we had our first Seder meal. It started out as a home school project. Our family enjoyed the symbolism of it so much, and it gave so much more meaning to the life, death and resurrection of Christ that we decided to do this every year and make it our family tradition. Here is a link to the traditional Jewish Seder meal.

As Christians we are so bombarded with the worldly celebration of Easter that we really need to go out of our way to make a big Jesus fuss over this time of year. Our children need to know the true meaning of Passover, Easter, Good Friday, Pesach, whatever you want to call it.

So here is how to make your own Seder plate:

Find a good printable Seder plate to save and print.


Take measurements, and use a normal plate to draw circles on the back of "sticky back plastic."


Make cut outs, and transfer the plastic to the printed side.


Put a little bit of glue stick in the centre of a paper plate.


Transfer the image onto the paper plate and remove all air bubbles.


There you have your own Seder plate!
