How to Make a Seder Pillow

Updated on February 22, 2014

Make a Seder Pillow

Here is fun and easy Passover craft for kids to do. These are a great way to entertain a church or daycare group, or to open up a conversation with your own children about this holiday and its roots.

The kings reclined on these pillows during the Seder meal. Help your child make his or her own Seder pillow, or make one as a gift for your Seder leader.

What you'll need to make your Seder Pillow...

A Large T-shirt (plain; no design on it!)

Two Rubber Bands


Polyfill (one 15 oz bag)

Ribbon (about 4 feet)

Craft Glue (or Hot Glue Gun)

Items to decorate your pillow with (sequins, beads, rickrack, felt, fabric markers, etc.)


  1. First, pull the sleeves of the t-shirt inside the body of the shirt, and pinch the neck opening of the shirt closed using one of the rubber bands. You could also cut off the sleeves, and sew the openings shut, but I like the tucking method because even the younger kids can do it themselves, without using any sharp needles.
  2. Next, stuff the body of the shirt with the polyfill. You can adjust the amount to be the firmness that you desire; the more you add, the firmer it will be when you're finished.
  3. Pinch the bottom of the shirt closed, and secure it with the second rubber band.
  4. Turn your Seder pillow sideways, so that the rubber-banded ends points to the left and right sides. Cut your piece of ribbon in half, so that you have two two-foot pieces. Tie a piece of ribbon around each end, so that it covers the rubber band.
  5. Use your choice of decorative items to dress up the front of your Seder pillow. Younger kids can use craft glue, while older children, or those with adult supervision, may prefer to use a hot glue gun.
  6. Allow glue to dry/cool, and then you Seder Pillow is ready to use!
