First, read Holiday Party and Carnival Basics for general overview of the what, how and why of kiddie Jewishy festivities. All my party stations are uber-thematic, educational and irresistible.

Thank you! The details are at my “Purim Carnival Stations” referenced in the post above. Basically, I bought a 24″ prize wheel (Amazon) and personalized it with images I copied/laminated/trimmed. I just attached the images with tape, because we can re-use the wheel for other events or classes throughout the year. The wheel is basically a dry-erase board, which means you can also draw anything you wish on the segments.
As for the actions that accompanied each photo, I list a few suggestions in the post. They were meant to teach or reinforce basic Purim story elements or mitzvot or trivia. The wheel operator was free to improvise “consequences” based on the ages of the players, but I did provide a table of materials and props for use.
Thanks, for answering so quickly.
Hoe did you construct the stand and spinner?
The prize wheel included the spinner and stand. I don’t remember which one I bought, but it appeared to be a standard 24″ dry-erase prize wheel.
