So... this year, NS will be dressed as Chester Cheeta and EN will be the Bamba Baby. The Mishloach manot will be either peanut butter rice crispies or peanut butter oatmeal bars (need to find out what Bracha one makes on rice crispie treats) and muffin-sized no-bake cheesecakes.

For the Seudah, we're having 9 or 10 adults and 13 kids ranging in age from 13 to 18 months or so.

We're doing picnic. Blankets on the floor. The meal will be deli sandwiches, french fries, potato salad, pasta salad, cole slaw, veggie salad... and something else but I have no idea what.

We're also going to bake cookies with the kids. Chocolate chip cookies with the younger kids and stained glass cookies with the older ones.

In past years, I've covered the tables with paper tablecloths and put crayons in the middle for folks to color and doodle and play tic-tac-toe during the serving. I've been to meals that are 'v'na-ha-foch hu' and we started with dessert and ended with soup.

So, what unique Purim Seudah things have you seen or done?

Wow, that sounds really fun. Also, sitting on the floor makes it easier to drink oneself 'under the table', no?
Enjoy!PS my word verification here is "babless". Is someone trying to tell me something???

Hello! You recently responded to a post on the amotherinisrael blog ( and were kind enough to mention I could contact you if I had more questions. We are making a pilot trip in three weeks to Israel with my two youngest children and are looking for communities to visit. If you have to time to email me I would love to write to you before we come for our pilot trip. You can reach me at – hope to hear from you Debbie
