  1. Die-cut the XL Seder Plate using blue cardstock or construction paper.
  2. Die-cut LG Seder Food #1 (Charoset and Beitzah) from red, white, yellow and light brown papers. Leave the white apple whole and cut the red apple along the perforated lines. Attach the red skin to the white apple. Darken the seeds with a black marking pen. Highlight the nuts with colored pens. Set the foods aside.
  3. Die-cut a second egg from white and yellow paper. Leave the two white eggs whole. Cut a yolk from the yellow eggs and attach to the white eggs (see Main Photo).
  4. Die-cut LG Seder Food #2 (Zeroa and Karpos) using green, white, brown and tan papers. Leave the white shank bone whole. Cut the bone area from the brown and tan papers. Adhere the tan shank over the white bone. Trim around the edges of the brown shank to add highlights (see Figure A). Adhere over the tan shank bone.
  5. Die-cut LG Seder Food #3 (Maror and Chazeret) from two shades of green and white paper. Leave the dark green lettuce leaf whole and cut highlights from the lighter leaf. Adhere to the darker leaf.
  6. Leave the dark green horseradish whole. Cut the stem area from the white horseradish. Adhere the white horseradish over the green horseradish. Use a gray colored pen for highlights (Figure B).
  7. Die-cut the Hexagon 6-Up from tan paper. Highlight with colored pens to create Matzo Crackers.
  8. Die-cut the LG Kiddush Cup using gray and purple papers. Leave the gray Cup whole. Trim around the purple Cup and adhere over the gray Cup to appear as wine in the cup. Die-cut the small Star of David on the Kiddush Cup using shiny gold paper. Adhere over the Star on the cup.
  9. The Seder Plate can now be assembled and glued down for a permanent display. In the sample the Seder Plate has been adhered to a 12" x 12" piece of patterned paper over a piece of cardstock or poster board. The pieces could also be left loose for the students to discuss and assemble.
