Purim: It’s All In The Face


Edible-030212-Face

It’s hard to believe it’s already here, but Purim is just a few days away. Amidst the hustle and bustle of the myriads of things we do in the days leading up to it, here are a few cute, simple, and fun ideas sure to bring smiles to everyone’s faces and get them into the Purim spirit!

 

Jolly Lollies

These silly lollypops are part treat, part toy. Your child can choose between the hilarious mustachioed pop or the jolly puckered mouth. Either way, your child’s smile will last long after the lollipop is gone.

 

Supplies

Red, pink, black or brown craft foam Craft knife, or small hole punch (hole should not be larger than 1/8”) Any wrapped lollipop Permanent marker and scissors

Directions

1) Use a marker to draw a mustache or lips onto craft foam. Cut out the shape with scissors. 2) To slide the lollipop through the foam, make a hole using a small punch, as shown, or make a tiny slit with a craft knife (adults job). Slip the lollipop through the hole.

 

Chocolate Mustache Supreme

Speaking of mustaches, I couldn’t resist putting in these simple chocolate molds that will also leave a “lasting mustache” after the chocolate is long gone!

 

 

Supplies

Chocolate molds Lollipop sticks Pink, brown, yellow, and white chocolate

Directions

Melt chocolate in a double boiler or microwave. Using a spoon place chocolate in molds and then add sticks. Place molds in freezer until chocolate has set.

Here are two suggestions for what to do with the lollipops:

1) Create a fun centerpiece using a colorful container, Styrofoam, and these chocolate lollys. 2) Individually wrap each lollipop, and use as party favors at your Purim Seudah.

 

Before and After

 

Supplies

Enlarged photos, laminated Dry erase markers

Directions

This one has a mustache that is easy to erase! This activity can keep kids entertained for hours! Let your children have a blast, by taking close up pictures of themselves and other family members and laminating the photos.

Your children will love using dry-erase markers on the images to make silly faces, turning each other into clowns, kings, cats, bunnies and any other idea they will come up with, and then they can start all over again. Additionally they (and you) can sample how their Purim face makeup will look. These can be used as well for special Adar placemats.
