Passover Sedar Food for Kids - with Homemade Gefilte Fish Recipe

I was menu planning a few days ago, and decided against doing gefilte fish.... then I got inspired and made some.   I used the recipe in Shalom on the Range, which is basically 2.5 lbs of fresh fish, ground up and mixed with 1/2 cup matzoh meal, 5 eggs, and a teaspoon of salt and pepper, then shaped into balls and dropped into a pot of boiling water with onion and fish heads/ carcasses and boiled on medium-low for 4 hours.  They were delicious!
This is the fish being ground.  The cookbook calls for a mixture of carp, buffalo, pike, and whitefish.  At the market, the fish monger informed me these are East Coast fish and I should have ordered them a week or two ago and they were all gone.  He then led me to some grouper, black cod, and salmon.
Here is what we ended up with!  Orange Cabbage from Nourishing Traditions, Pineapple Matzoh Kugel from Shalom  on the Range, Roasted Chicken (350 for 1.25 hours without seasoning), Gefilte Fish  from Shalom  on the Range, Charoses from Marsha's Kitchen, Horseradish  from Shalom  on the Range (with a root from a friend's garden), Vegetable Kugel  from Shalom  on the Range  (modified to fit the contents of our weekly CSA box, of course), Roasted Butternut Squash (precut and peeled butternut squash roasted with olive oil and sea salt), and Matzoh Ball Soup.  We ran out of time to make macaroons from Elana's Pantry!   
While we were cooking, the baby was fed his first matzoh by his brother.
The matzoh ball dough...
This is the Kidcraft Passover Set.  It is wooden, and includes a sedar plate with removable food, a wine bottle and wine glass, afikomen bag, matzoh bag, hagaddah, and 3 matzohs, one of which is a 2-part puzzle.  Fun to play with, plus it doubles as a sedar plate!
