Passover is so exciting for young children. Today we used all our senses. We heard the story of the Exodus from Egypt from the Haggadah and we sang the Mah Nishtanah. We sat at long tables for a Seder (which means ‘order’) to eat tasty foods commemorating the experience of our ancestors. We dipped celery in salt water to remember their tears. The charoset was so yummy! The smell of matza ball soup made us warm and happy. We loved to see all our friends celebrating together.
The children have been so busy preparing for Passover and this Seder. They chopped vegetables and mixed the charoset. They decorated colorful kiddush cups and sewed Afikomen bags. They prepared a delicious Matza Cake. Here is the recipe:
3 TBS unsweetened cocoa
3 TBS water/wine
1 tsp instant coffe
1/2 cup sugar
100 grams margarine
Boil everything together and add a cup of wine. Dip each matza in wine, then spread with the chocolate spread. Layer 5 of the dipped and spread matzas on top of each other. Put in the refrigerator on parchment paper to set. Enjoy.
