Purim History and a Fun Purim Craft!

Purim starts Saturday night, so here’s a fun Purim craft to make with your little ones. Noisemakers are one of the funnest elements of Purim when you’re a kid, I have great memories of reading the Purim tale and banging out sounds. This Purim craft is recycled, and here’s a little backstory from the author: “The noise maker or grogger is a classic Purim prop used during the reading of the Megillat Esther (Book of Esther) to make noise every time the name of the evil Haman is mentioned. The reading takes about 1/2 hour, and during that time children who are old enough to come to the reading must sit quietly so that everyone can hear every single word of the story. So listening for Haman’s name gives everyone a reason to pay attention!” Find out how to make this Purim Noisemaker from Recycled Cups after the jump…
