Purim is coming and it's coming quickly. It's not exactly around the corner yet, but it's definitely a couple of blocks away, so if you are still unsure of your kids' costumes, your mishloach manot ideas and your plans for the Purim seudah, all I can is - get hopping, my friend. It's a lot to do in a small amount of time.
My kids are going to be, in no particluar order, a chef, a hotdog, a hamburger, a karate guy, a princess, a donut, an astronaut, a baseball player and a piece of pizza. Oh wait, did you also notice that I don't actually have nine kids? Yeah, they can't make up their minds.
So instead of focusing on how many costumes we can try on, love and then discard three minutes later, we made hamentaschen - and we didn't even have to venture into our freezing cold kitchen. Some colored paper, scissors and glue (and a short stay in the oven of the play kitchen) and we had ourselves a wall of hamentaschen.
Yup, Purim is definitely in the air.
