Gather up the family for an architectural feat (or feast): Kendra Vizcaino-Lico created this yummy tropical Matzah House for Epicurious (find full instructions here). Or try your hand using a rectangular piece of cardboard, five sheets of matzah, peanut butter as mortar (if you don’t eat kitniot, try cashew or almond butter), matzah crackers, toothpicks and an assortment of kosher-for-Passover candies and chocolates, such as jelly fruit slices and rings.

There’s something for everyone — and everyone to do together — in the Days United Passover in a Box. Inside, a wooden seder plate unfolds to become a puzzle; a color-and-read illustrated story of the Exodus; a 10 Plagues Memory Game; and, of course, a super-easy-to-follow interactive Haggadah (scan and listen to the songs and see related videos), illustrated by Israeli artist Ruth Gwili.

As Joanna Brichetto says on her blog, Biblebeltbalabusta.com, “LEGO doesn’t ‘do’ Jewish.” So, through exploration with her kids and hacks (read: creative modification), she created this Minifig Seder Table. Take a day, or more, to sort through all those LEGOs with your kids and visit Brichetto’s website for inspiration — she’s got an assortment of Seder plates, plus all kinds of other Jewish-themed ideas.
