Passover Seders, while a beautiful tradition and reason for families to get together, can also be hectic between the preparing and cooking. Keeping the kids entertained while the grown-ups are in the kitchen has always been a concern. This year, I decided to create a Passover placemat and activity sheet to help.
Since I’m sure we can’t be the only family struggling to keep the kids busy while we are cooking, I thought it would be a great idea to offer the Passover placemat as a printable to all of you. I hope that you will be able to print it out and use it for years to come.
When we were creating this, I wanted to make sure that I put a few of our favorite things onto the Passover placemat. I also wanted to make sure that we had enough things to entertain all ages. So the younger kids can color while the older kids can work on the word search and word scramble.
First, there is a box for each child to write as many words as possible using the letters from “Passover Seder.” Who can make the most words?
We wanted to make sure there were plenty of things to color, so my oldest daughter hand-drew this seder plate, where your kids can draw each item. She also drew the cutest bowl of matzah ball soup ever for the kids to color. The kids can also color in the words “Happy Passover” and the Star of David. Just grab some crayons, colored pencils, or markers.
I’ve always been a fan of word scrambles. All of the words we scrambled are Passover-related words. Can you guess them all? We included the answer key in case you’re stumped.
The Passover word search was super fun to make. I found a website where you enter the words, tell it how many rows and columns, and it creates the word search for you. What a fun tool!
Finally, we included three Passover-themed jokes because everyone loves to laugh. I hope you will think they are as funny as we do.
want to save paper?
If you have a laminating machine, laminate your Passover placemat and use a dry-erase marker on each activity. Just wipe off the marker and do it again and again. This will also help to keep food off of the placemat. My 13-year-old thought of this. She’s pretty genius, isn’t she?

- Download our Passover placemat and activity sheet, open it in Adobe Acrobat, and print. Make sure to select landscape and “actual size” before printing.
- Don’t forget to write your child’s name on it (and the year) if you decide to keep it.
The best part about this Passover placemat and activity sheet is that it’s a digital file, so you can save it to your computer and print as many as you need. I always recommend saving it somewhere that you will remember, in case you want to use them next year.
