So here is something that almost every Mom (or Dad, or Grandparent!) can put together in about 5 minutes to engage the kiddos in the Purim Story. It requires so little, I'm almost willing to bet you $5 that you have these items at your house- or something similar that would work really well.
1 piece of card stock like paper
1 straw or handle (Popsicle stick? plastic knife?)
1 pair of scissors
Crayons or markers for coloring
- Draw a simple sketch of a Queen Vashti, Queen Esther, Mordechai or Haman. EG chose Queen Esther.
- Cut out the drawing, around the basic face.
- Let the kiddos color to their hearts content (EG colored both sides)
- Cut out the eyes
- Attach the handle
