After the Seder, Turkish Jews would have the father throw grass, coins, and candy for children to collect. This is a symbol of the wealth the Jews brought out of Egypt. The grass represents the reeds of the Red Sea and a wish that the year ahead should be "green" and productive. Some families take parsley (a sign of Spring) and recite a verse in Arabic. With each word, they cross the parsley in their hands from one shoulder to the other of the person they are facing. Then, they bless them to have a good year and do this until everyone has blessed everyone.
