Let PJ Library’s Unique, Family-Friendly Ideas Enliven Your Purim Holiday

This year the Purim Holiday falls on March 9-10. The colors and festivities around Purim are so much fun and engaging for kids and PJ Library has tools and family-friendly ideas to make the holiday extra special.

On Purim, it’s customary to listen to the biblical Book of Esther (also known as the Megillah in Hebrew), put on comic productions of the story of Purim called purimspiels (Yiddish for “plays”), dress up in costumes as the famous characters from the story, bake (and eat!) hamantaschen, shake Purim groggers (noisemakers), give gift baskets (mishloach manot) to friends and do tzedakah and other good works to spread joy and help the needy.

PJ Library is here to help with all of that. If you have signed your child up (it’s free) to received mailers from PJ Library you should have the Purim set by now. In this celebration kit I got the book, Brave Girl and a Purim Box to make and decorate.

This Purim, PJ Library has created 18 great ideas sure to spur creativity and togetherness. Whether your children have never dressed for Purim before or baked a classic, delicious hamantaschen– or you’re just tired of the same old routine – check out these enjoyable activities! And, for more, families are welcome to visit PJ Library’s Purim Hub!

Families raising Jewish children may subscribe at PJ Library HERE, tapping in to a wealth of information, parenting resources and community events as well as free books.
