Ideas for Purim Carnival:

Running a Purim Carnival can be a great way to bring the funand some of the factsabout Purim home to the kids in your community.

There are many ways of arranging a carnivalin conjunction with a school, a shul or a community centerall you really need is a room, some materials and plenty of PRIZESMostly however you choose to set it up, youll need some great booths!!

Try these on for size!

1. Find the Jews: (Jellybeans, flour, plastic bowls)

The Jews (jellybeans) are all mixed up with the Persians (flour) in a big bowl. Your job is to find them. The one catch is that you cant use your hands.

Try racing your friends!

2. Soak Haman: (Sponges, garbage bags, buckets owater)

Have your favorite madrich./a dress up as Haman, cover themselves well with garbage bags and act as a target for a sponge toss!!

3. Hamentashen/Oznei Haman Decorating: (Hamentashen, cake icing, sprinkles)

This one is pretty self-explanatorythey take a hamentash, decorate it, and eat itjust make sure they say the bracha and al hamichya!

4. Souvenir T-Shirt/Tachposet Making: (White T-Shirts, T-Shirt decorating paint, sparkles)

Purims all about costumesat this booth they can make themselves a new one, or add something to the one theyre already wearing!

5. Shave Hamans Head: (Ballons, shaving cream, Popsicle sticks)

This ones all about Speed!! See who can clear a balloon of all the shaving cream first!

6. Baruch Mordechai/Arur HamanCan You Tell the Difference? (Coke, Pepsi, cups)

Try a taste testCoke is Mordechai and Pepsi is Hamancan you tell the difference?

7. Megillah Reading Contest (Megillah, stopwatch)

Who can read 10 Bnei Haman quickest? Who can remember them without looking?

8. Get in the Achashveiroshs Palace: (Masking tape)

Make up a maze of tape on the floor, kids must run through the maze to get to the palace without stepping on any tapefastest one through gets the throne!!

9. Esthers Makeup: (Face paint)

Esther didnt need any make up to look beautifulbut we love wearing make-up on Purim. Come get your face painted!! (Be careful of negiah issues in this one.)

10. Prize Booth (Prizes, tickets)

Each of the above mentioned booths should be giving out tickets which the kids can then use to collect prizes at the end of the carnival at the prize booth.
