Just a little over a week before Purim, and like many of you, we are finalizing plans for our costumes, seudah, and mishloach manot.
While I don’t post many pictures of my kids, they are so cute in their Purim costumes, I couldn’t resist!
Over the past six Purims, we’ve had:
- a snail
- a king
- a monkey
- a knight
- a dragon
- a Ninja
- a bumblebee
- the Monopoly Man
- Darth Vader, Yoda & Princess Leia
Some have been store-bought, others have been home-made. I’ve written about making your own Purim costumes, for those that are interested.
This year, my sports-obsessed sons are going as their favorite basketball players. We tried to suggest some alternatives, but decided that as long as they aren’t dressing as something grossly inappropriate, this is their choice to make. Pictures to come soon.
My daughter will go as a (store-bought) butterfly (purchased on clearance at Old Navy after Halloween for $8). Our mishloach manot will be super simple – and similarly fluttery. Pictures of that as well, coming soon.
Tell me: What costumes are in the works at your house?
