Exodus 11:1 - 12:33
Passover Craft

Passover is the Jewish holiday that
celebrates the Israelites’ exodus and
freedom from slavery under the Egyptians.  
The Passover Seder is a ritual feast–full of
ceremony and symbolism–that marks the
beginning of Passover. It involves retelling
the story of the exodus from Egypt together
with dinner. This craft will help children
better understand the ceremony and
symbolisms of Passover.

Now the Lord had said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague
on Pharaoh and on Egypt. After that, he will let you go from
here, and when he does, he will drive you out completely. Tell
the people that men and women alike are to ask their neighbors
for articles of silver and gold.” So Moses said, “This is what the
Lord says: ‘About midnight I will go throughout Egypt. Every
firstborn son in Egypt will die, from the firstborn son of Pharaoh,
who sits on the throne, to the firstborn son of the female slave,
who is at her hand mill, and all the firstborn of the cattle as well.
There will be loud wailing throughout Egypt—worse than there
has ever been or ever will be again. But among the Israelites not
a dog will bark at any person or animal.’ Then you will know that
the Lord makes a distinction between Egypt and Israel. All these
officials of yours will come to me, bowing down before me and
saying, ‘Go, you and all the people who follow you!’ After that I
will leave.” Then Moses, hot with anger, left Pharaoh. The Lord
had said to Moses, “Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you—so that
my wonders may be multiplied in Egypt.” Moses and Aaron
performed all these wonders before Pharaoh, but the Lord
hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let the Israelites go
out of his country. The Lord said to Moses and Aaron in Egypt,  
“This month is to be for you the first month, the first month of
your year. Tell the whole community of Israel that on the tenth
day of this month each man is to take a lamb for his family, one
for each household. If any household is too small for a whole
lamb, they must share one with their nearest neighbor, having
taken into account the number of people there are. You are to
determine the amount of lamb needed in accordance with what
each person will eat. The animals you choose must be year-old
males without defect, and you may take them from the sheep or
the goats. Take care of them until the fourteenth day of the
month, when all the members of the community of Israel must
slaughter them at twilight. Then they are to take some of the
blood and put it on the sides and tops of the doorframes of the
houses where they eat the lambs. That same night they are to
eat the meat roasted over the fire, along with bitter herbs, and
bread made without yeast. Do not eat the meat raw or boiled in
water, but roast it over a fire—with the head, legs and internal
organs. Do not leave any of it till morning; if some is left till
morning, you must burn it. This is how you are to eat it: with your
cloak tucked into your belt, your sandals on your feet and your
staff in your hand. Eat it in haste; it is the Lord’s Passover. “On
that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every
firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on
all the gods of Egypt. I am the Lord. The blood will be a sign for
you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I
will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I
strike Egypt. “This is a day you are to commemorate; for the
generations to come you shall celebrate it as a festival to the
Lord—a lasting ordinance. For seven days you are to eat bread
made without yeast. On the first day remove the yeast from your
houses, for whoever eats anything with yeast in it from the first
day through the seventh must be cut off from Israel. On the first
day hold a sacred assembly, and another one on the seventh
day. Do no work at all on these days, except to prepare food for
everyone to eat; that is all you may do. “Celebrate the Festival
of Unleavened Bread, because it was on this very day that I
brought your divisions out of Egypt. Celebrate this day as a
lasting ordinance for the generations to come. In the first month
you are to eat bread made without yeast, from the evening of
the fourteenth day until the evening of the twenty-first day. For
seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. And anyone,
whether foreigner or native-born, who eats anything with yeast in
it must be cut off from the community of Israel. Eat nothing made
with yeast. Wherever you live, you must eat unleavened bread.”
Then Moses summoned all the elders of Israel and said to them,
“Go at once and select the animals for your families and
slaughter the Passover lamb. Take a bunch of hyssop, dip it into
the blood in the basin and put some of the blood on the top and
on both sides of the doorframe. None of you shall go out of the
door of your house until morning. When the Lord goes through
the land to strike down the Egyptians, he will see the blood on
the top and sides of the doorframe and will pass over that
doorway, and he will not permit the destroyer to enter your
houses and strike you down. “Obey these instructions as a
lasting ordinance for you and your descendants. When you
enter the land that the Lord will give you as he promised,
observe this ceremony. And when your children ask you, ‘What
does this ceremony mean to you?’ then tell them, ‘It is the
Passover sacrifice to the Lord, who passed over the houses of
the Israelites in Egypt and spared our homes when he struck
down the Egyptians.’” Then the people bowed down and
worshiped. The Israelites did just what the Lord commanded
Moses and Aaron. At midnight the Lord struck down all the
firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the
throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon,
and the firstborn of all the livestock as well. Pharaoh and all his
officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there
was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without
someone dead.

Wondering what to do with all that left over Matzah?
Why not make a Matzah house! Much like a
gingerbread house... Except that it's entirely made out
of Matzah. Great project for kids and could literally work
for any holiday.
