Purim Ideas

This was our bulletin board. The children made their own Purim characters and depictions of the 4 mitzvot of Purim. Each shape is another Mitzvah and the puppets in the middle are the different Purim characters. Underneath, the children wrote the name of the person they created.

Our highlight!! The children loved creating these. It was a 3 week process. The students created them however they wished. I set out trays of different things they could use for eyes, nose, mouth, hair. I had different crowns they were able to trace and decide which one they wanted to use and different color paper. The tail on Vashti is a pipe cleaner.
This was an absolute hit!

For our Graggers, we decorated water bottles with cut streamers. We then tested different sounds by filling a variety of containers with beans, rice, magic nuudles, lentils, pompoms, beans and buttons. We tried to predict what would make loud sounds and what would be soft. Our containers were metal, plastic and cardboard.
After filling them and testing them out we chose what we want for our graggers and filled them with funnels.
Be sure to hot glue the cap on when you're done as these little pieces are a choking hazard.

For our megillah, we dressed up and acted out the Purim story and took pictures of each scene. This was very special and we bound it into a mini book.
Of course we also made hamantaschen and had a grand masquerade. We set up a store with baskets and the kids went shopping for shalach manos. They also created baskets out of clics.

Do you have any purim ideas that worked for you?

Happy Purim!
