Enjoy these child-friendly mishloach manos ideas, which are fun to create, a joy to give, and, of course, exciting to receive!

Rainy Day Recharge

Make a splash with this adorable, easy-to-assemble rain-themed mishloach manos. Add to the cuteness with a fun note reading, “You make me happy when skies are gray!”

You will need:
  • bottled rainwater (available in ShopRite)
  • chocolate umbrella
  • blue ribbon

Using the ribbon, tie the umbrella to the water bottle.

Meet Them at the Mic

Wish your recipients a happy Purim, loud and clear!

You will need:
  • flat-bottomed clear plastic test tubes (available from Amazon)
  • black clown nose (available from Amazon and from Clownantics.com)
  • on/off label
  • candy of your choice
  • glue gun

Fill the test tube with candy and close with the cap.

Using a glue gun, glue the clown nose onto the top of the tube.

Attach the on/off label.

Bunny Ears

When it comes to the oft-repeated catchphrase “less is more,” I always think of my friend Sheva M. She has a great eye for design using just a few elements, giving every project she works on the perfect look! Thank you, Sheva, for this simple yet adorable idea!

You will need:
  • bunny ear labels (you can also cut them out of paper)
  • box or bag in contrasting colors
  • label
  • coordinating bow

Cut bunny ears (or any animal ears) out of cardstock or construction paper. Attach them to your box or bag.

Affix your label and finish off with a bow.
