Marvelous Matzoh Cover
Age: 4 and up
A Matzoh cover is a piece of cloth traditionally used to cover a piece of unleavened bread, called Matzoh, before the Passover Seder meal. Add a burst of colour to your Passover Seder table with this easy-to-do Matzoh cover.
What you'll need:
- One piece of coloured felt (approximately 8x10-inches)
- Silk ribbon
- Foam letters and shapes
- Craft glue
How to make it:
- Cut four pieces of ribbon and glue them around the perimeter of your felt.
- Trim any excess ribbon so that it makes a perfect border.
- Use pre-cut foam letters to spell out M, A, T, Z, A, H. Glue them onto your cover diagonally. The M should be in the top left corner and the H should finish in the bottom right corner.
- Wait at least 20 minutes for glue to set.
- Decorate the rest of your Matzah cover as you wish with foam cutouts, sparkles or even fabric paint.
- Foam letters and other cutouts are available at craft stores and dollar stores. If you have trouble finding foam letter cutouts, simply cut the letters out of different coloured pieces of felt and glue them onto your cover using craft glue.
- Use fabric or puff paint and glitter to add a special touch to your Matzoh cover.
- If you have enough felt, make a personalized Matzoh cover for each of your Seder guests to take home. Bonus: You can incorporate their names into the design and use them as seating cards, too.
