Purim Graggers (Noisemakers) for the Kids

Handmade Purim Graggers for the Kids | Evermine Blog | www.evermine.com
The Jewish Holiday of Purim, in which we celebrate Jewish survival and freedom, is fast approaching. Besides the excitement of reading the Megillah (the story of Purim), we anticipate the fun that comes with getting dressed up, eating hamantashen (traditional Purim cookies) and gragger craft projects.

A ‘Gragger’ is the traditional noisemaker that we use on Purim during the reading of the Megillah. The gragger can be made of any kind of fun noise making materials, so this year I plan to make a craft table at our Purim party just for kids.

Every child will get to decorate these cute bongo ‘drums’ (containers found at Specialty Bottle), which have been pre-filled with decorative adhesives like fabric strips, ribbon, decorative paper and other embellishments, including a gemstone to increase the noise of the drum.

Each drum is wrapped with bakers twine and a personalized tag that says “Make Some Noise at Chabad.” This will be an easy and fun craft for all the various ages of the kids, and can be used during the Megillah reading which will take place after the fun craft.
