This year, Purim falls motzei Shabbat (Saturday night) and Sunday. Today is the fast of Ester, since it can be pushed off if it falls on Shabbat. For more of the specifics for this year, when things are a little different, see here.
Here is a link to some Purim resources: crafts, coloring pages, mishloach manot ideas, and more.
Check out our Super hero Purim projects from last year: Girl Scout Samoa hamentashen (see photo above!), crafts, fun mishloach manot ideas, and more.
Remember that Purim has 4 specific mitzvot:
- Megillah – hear every word (twice!)
- Give charity to at least two people
- Send Mishloach Manot – gifts of food – to friends
- Have a festive meal on Purim (some hold it must be meat)
