Happy Adar! This year is a leap year, both secularly (Happy Feb 29!) and Jewishly, when we get a whole extra month of Adar.
Adar means Purim is on its way (This year, it’s March 23-24, 2016.) And Passover comes quickly upon the heels of Purim (If you’re already on Passover lists and resources, I’ve got you covered there, too.)
Some Purim resources here on OJH:

Coloring pages can be found here.
Looking for some cool things for the kids? Try the Purim activity pack, these Purim puppets, some Purim kid links, a fun Lego summary of the story, or some of these other ideas from a Jewish Homeschooling Blog.
Here are some really nice (and maybe more adult) Purim-related crafts.
Happy Adar, and happy Purim!
