Let me start with a disclaimer… I’m learning about this holiday along with you. My goal is to share more varied holidays and traditions to enlighten us to the world greater than our own homes. Children love a celebration and teaching these often sparks an interest in learning more.
Last night was the start of the Jewish holiday of Purim, which continues until tonight.
Everyday Jewish Mom’s explains the history behind Purim here, this is more of an explanation for the adult.
A fun story for the kiddos. The Princess of Persia from BimBam
Here is a link to Everyday Jewish Mom where she shows some fun activities she did a home with her own little ones. a
Here is the link to the Hamantschen Dough that she uses to bake Hamantschen cookies with her children.
Today get out and celebrate Purim. Read the story, dress up in costume, make Hamantschen (even if it is just with play dough), learn something new.
