Each seder table must be set with a special Elijah's goblet, here's an easy one to make with the kids

Materials & Tools

One large plastic wine glass
Different colored sheets of tissue paper, ripped into small pieces
Ribbon
Decorative embellishments, such as craft gems
Scissors
Paint brush
White craft glue


Directions

1. Paint a small section of the wine glass with a thin layer of craft glue. Attach the tissue paper, overlapping the pieces to create a molten or stained glass effect. Continue painting the glue on and layering with paper until the entire glass is covered.

2. Once finished with the tissue paper, paint a thin layer of glue over the entire cup. The glue acts as shellac.

3. Let the cup dry for at least an hour.

4. Cut a piece of ribbon several inches long. Dot glue along one side of the ribbon. Wind the glued side of the ribbon around the stem of the cup until completely covered.

5. Decorate the rest of the cup with craft embellishments, such as small gems. Tip: Use the kind of embellishments that have sticky adhesive on one side, so all you have to do is remove the backing and stick them on.

According to Jewish tradition, the prophet Elijah visits every single Passover Seder -- from Jerusalem to New Jersey and from Australia to Africa. Each seder table must be set with a special Elijah's goblet, which is typically larger and more ornate than any other wine goblet on the table.
