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.

    This is wonderful !!!

    How did you construct the wheel of Purim? It would be greatly appreciated if you would please. email or post the exact instructions. We would like to use it in our Purim Carnival this year.

    Thank you,

    • 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.

    Hoe did you construct the stand and spinner?
