Four Questions Card

Passover will be here in less than a week and my youngest son has been working very hard practicing the four questions. Now that he reads, I'm concerned that we will get to Grandma's house for Seder and the questions will be printed slightly differently in their Haggadah and throw him off. Therefore I decided to make him a "Four Questions Practice Card." He can practice from the card and then we can easily bring it to Grandma and Grandpa's house.

Here you can see the front and back of the card.

When my youngest son became old enough to do the Four Questions, we decide that his brother needed a special blessing to practice also and decided on the long version of the kiddush. Last year he didn't read Hebrew yet and had to memorize the whole thing. This year I searched the Internet for a transliteration and made him this practice card. I'm happy to report that he can now read enough Hebrew that he has not actually looked at the transliteration.

I find that all this practicing makes the boys more excited for Passover. What are you doing to get ready for Passover? Who does the Four questions at your Seder?


  1. The youngest is often too shy to say the four questions, so we often sing them all together.

  2. What a lovely idea! My little one made an adorable haggadah in school.
    We often have a few "youngests" saying it-depending on how many families are together at the seder!
    Happy Passover to all!

  3. happy Passover to you.
    I have learnt something today from this post. And I have a better understanding of the Passover in the bible too. Thank you

  4. What a great idea! You are inspiring me to let me girls to pick a small piece of Hagadah and practice reading it before the seder.
