Materials & Tools

One large plastic wine glass
Multi-colored tissue paper
Permanent markers
Paint brush
White craft glue


Tear tissue paper into small pieces, approximately 2 inches square. (This is a great job for littler hands that may not be up to making their own cup yet.)

Dilute the craft glue, using 3 parts glue, 1 part water.

Using a decoupage technique, place a square of tissue paper on the goblet and brush over it with a thin coating of the glue mixture. Continue around the goblet until it is fully covered. Overlapping pieces of tissue is desirable and will create a stained glass effect.

Allow the glue to dry for at least one hour and then decorate the stem with permanent markers.

Jewish tradition teaches that the spirit of the 9th century BCE prophet Elijah visits each family's seder. After the festive meal, families open their front door to invite in Elijah's presence. They also set the seder table with a special cup just for Elijah, who takes a small sip of wine from each home he visits.


I am not Jewish but am researching the passover as part of RE lessons for my class. These activities would be better if they were illustrated with pictures for the end result. I would not like to get these activities wrong.
