It’s almost here, folks: Passover. And it can be one of the most difficult times of the year if you are a picky eater, have kids who are picky eaters, have a bad stomach or just don’t like matzah.
My daughter (thankfully) loves matzah, especially since she and her classmates make their own at school. So making matzah pizza or slathering matzah with cream cheese and jelly is quite appealing for her.
For other kids with the opposite feeling about the bread of affliction, well, I am truly sorry for what lies ahead. But that’s why we wanted to come up with some delicious, eye-catching ways to serve matzah that your kids will love. And scroll down for a video of the matzah snack-making in action!
Comment below and tell us your favorite kid-friendly Passover tips! We could all use the help, amirite?
