Purim is all about dressing up and having fun!
These fun masks are easy for children to customise themselves and with a bit of imagination you can dress up as absolutely anyone!

You will need:

  • A paper plate
  • scissors
  • ribbons
  • crayons
  • sticky gems or buttons

Cut a mask shape into your paper plate. We left space for the nose and later added holes for the eyes.

Cut the top of the mask into the right shape for your costume. Rivka wanted to dress up as Queen Esther so we cut a crown shape into the top of the mask, but you can add horns or antennae, too..

Now you just have to fill in the details and decorate your mask, we added shiny gems, eyebrows, eyelashes and a crown, but you could add an eyepatch, spots or glitter and feathers, too! Have fun! Chag Purim Sameach!
