Exercises for younger children:

Make a transparency or a wall chart from this table.

Use as a memory game by putting items on a Seder plate and covering them with a cloth after 30 seconds. You can add other items, such as: wine cup, salt water, Elijah's cup, copy of the Haggadah, by setting them all on a larger tray -- this will give 10 items in all.

Participants have one minute to write down as many items as they can remember. Everyone gets one point per correct answer.

Whoever has the most points then has to explain aloud the meaning of any one item to double their score. Anyone else who can explain another two items correctly can double their score.

A third person who can explain a further three items correctly can double their score.

A fourth person who can explain the last four items correctly can double their score.
