Resources for Passover

Passover - Pesach - is soon approaching
and we are very excited!

"this day shall become to you a remembrance. 
And you shall observe it as a festival 
to {YHVH}  יהוה throughout your generations – 
observe it as a festival, an everlasting law."
Exodus 12:14 

Here are some of the resources
I have come across that can be useful
as we prepare for teaching and observing
this set-apart day to YHVH.

Coloring fun:

Passover coloring pages

Passover coloring pages (in pdf)

More Passover coloring pages (in pdf)

More Pesach/Passover coloring pages

Activities and crafts:

Passover Activities for Children - matzah cover, placemats, etc...

Ten Plague Masks - a craft idea (or can use paper plates)

Ten Plagues Placard craft: Part 1 and Part 2

Four Questions Book craft - If you desire to use "the 4 questions"

Ten Plagues illustration - Could attempt to draw/paint to depict the plagues

Cardboard Tube Moses - craft idea 

Matzah Holder - make your own 

Passover Bag of Plagues -  fun idea

Matzah Cover Tutorial - make your own matzah cover


Dayenu - traditional, fun Passover song (sang by our eldest and myself)

Passover Song - Yeshua, our Passover Lamb and remembrance of Him

The Pesach Song (We're Leaving) - Beautiful song about leaving Egypt (physically/spiritually)


Passover Story - Beautiful recap of how The Almighty delivered His people (6 minutes)

Messiah in Passover - short video showing what Yeshua fulfilled in the Passover (4 minutes)

The Messiah - Prophecy Fulfilled - Movie showing how Yeshua fulfilled the Passover and how a Jewish man shares it with his family during their Passover observation. Longer but very good. (50 minutes)

Know Your Enemy (Part 12- The Plagues)See how the plagues that YHVH brought upon Egypt targeted specific "gods" that they worshiped, showing His authority as the One True Elohim.
Video is less than 8 minutes. Watch and connect some dots that maybe didn't connect before.Very interesting.

Let My People Go! Passover/Pesach Skit -  A skit we did with friends one year on Pesach :)

In the past, we have not used a haggadah (traditional "telling") for Passover,
but have only had the three items mentioned in Scripture while reading the Scripture pertaining to them.

But if one desires to add some of the traditions and have a haggadah to print and use,
I have found this one to be a pretty good one.

You Shall Tell Your Children - Messianic Passover Haggadah (pdf format)

One last resource to share is the Let My People Go board game.
We have found this to be a delightful game to play as a family!
And the rhymes are very cute and catchy.
The game is a little difficult to find (about $15) but worth the buy if you can find it!

May your Pesach be blessed! As well as your preparation!

p.s. This will be an ongoing list, of sorts. Check back for additions/changes. :)

I"m not sure if you know or not, but homeschoolshare has a free passover lapbook. Home school share is a site devoted to creating free lapbooks and unit studies for homeschool families. A few years ago I created that a lapbook for passover. Hope you children will enjoy it.

Thank you for sharing your resources, this is my first passover that I am truly in peace to be celebrating as I am personally coming out of the bondage of "Easter", my family is I am sure not sure what to think and having a unequally yoked marriage, I am praying that the Father will soften my husbands heart as I make a conscious objection to Easter and its pagan idolatry. LoRd forgive me should I stumble in this new path I have been shown,since I began to open my eyes to His Word.
