Ever have a hard time keeping kids quiet during the megilla? Problem solved with this multi-tasking gragger!
I found this small spice jar at a local craft store, and instantly thought about filling it half way with small candies, just enough to make some noise and nosh on a few along the way. Let you child slowly savor a bit of the candy in between shakes!
small jar with lid (can be a baby food jar or spice jar)
jelly beans, chocolate chips, or M & M candies
hot glue gun, or strong craft glue
- Older children can measure lengths of ribbon to fit around the jar. While the lid is on, glue the ribbon, sequins and jewels around the jar (with the help of a grown up).
- Make sure that the lid can open and close.
- Fill it with your choice of candy!
- After Megilla Reading, you can refill this gragger and give it to a friend in Mishloach Manot!
