Last week we celebrated a fun Jewish holiday called Purim.
If you were to compare it to an American holiday I would say it’s a mash up of Halloween and Easter.
We dress up in costume and pass out baskets to our friends.
After a theme is picked I buy costumes and basket items that correspond.
In 2015 our theme was Native American.
In 2014 our theme was Despicable Me.
In 2013 our theme was Sesame Street.
Our theme this year was Superheroes.
What really happened this year was I used the kids birthday party (which we celebrated the week before) theme. I added a few things I found around the house to the shirt i wore to their birthday party and called it a day. Sarah’s birthday outfit/costume was too cute not to use again.
Just like previous years we attended our Synagogues Purim Carnival.
After dinner we sat down to watch the magicians juggling act!
Our “baskets” or Mishloach Manot were also Superhero themed.Pow printable can be found here.
I wanted a reusable basket this year so I opted for crayon boxes. Inside was a can of Red Bull “fuel”, a “Superhero” lollipop, “You’re The Balm” chap stick, and “TNT” red vines. Cape and mask printable can be found here.Printable can be found here.Printable can be found here.
I decided to keep it pretty simple this year. I had a lot going on and couldn’t devote anymore time to our mishloach manot this year. What matters is that Sarah LOVED the boxes and even asked me to make her one.
