At the seder meal of Passover, it is traditional to set the table with glasses for wine (or grape juice). An extra glass is always placed on the table and filled, and at a certain point after the dinner the door is opened for a minute or two so that the Prophet Elijah may enter if he wishes. Many Jewish families have an elaborate Elijah cup. We've used a plastic wine glass (from a party store or supermarket) and some stick-on gems to make ours. Older children might want to write "Elijah" on the cup with permanent markers too.
You will need:
- A plastic wine goblet
- Sticky gems
- Permanent pens (optional)
Simply decorate your goblet with sticky gems and optional permanent pens. With younger children you might want to give the permanent pens a miss!
