What's the BEST song on the Seder night!? That's right! MA NISHTANA! Have a small discussion with your little one about Ma Nishtana. Have they heard the song before? How does the song go? Ma Nishtana is a song that is usually sung by the youngest member of the family, but sometimes the whole family joins in! The song poses 4 questions that are written as if they came from the mind of a child:
1. Why do we eat Matzah tonight, and not chametz as we do usually?
2. Why do we eat Marror? (Ewwwww)
3. Why do we dip our veggies twice?
4. Why do we lean when we eat instead of sitting nicely?
Choose 2-3 20-30 minute activities from the options below:
Ma Nishtana Fruit Salad: Find 4 toys/ pictures that resemble the 4 questions in Ma Nishtana. Place them in 4 corners of your lounge or garden. Call out the name of one and have your toddler race to the toy/ picture. Repeat this until all 4 have been covered and feel free to do a few more rounds!
Have a zoom playdate with your toddler's friends from daycare and have a song contest of who can sing Ma Nishtana the loudest, the softest, the squeakiest or the most high pitched.
