Purim Carnival Ideas
for each and every year we celebrate and observe the Purim Festival with carnival type games of fun! Three days away and excitement sets in realizing you need some fun Purim Carnival Ideas. Maybe simple, maybe not.
A Purim Festival is not complete without the Purim Carnival and Purim Carnival Ideas for your Purim Party is here!
We call this the Jewish Halloween, the American made up holiday to dress up, and no need to knock on any doors for candy, just have some on hand with all the fun. So, now as the Spring nears from the winter, instead of the fall, its Purim time, among the land.
Purim Carnival Ideas were a bit challenging and I chose to focus on one theme. Did you know there is an ‘Ode to the Solo Cup?’ Oh yes, the red, blue, and other colors, but mostly red is the main color chosen. Blue would follow in second place. The solo cup has more uses than just drinking a liquid from it. Like Purim Carnival Ideas!
The Ultimate, Fun, Solo Cup Challenge Game – Flip Cup
The Flip Cup is a drinking game. It’s quite a good game for Purim because this is one holiday that gives permission to drink. Connecting us to Esther’s Banquet. The game offers each player to feel the tension, the challenge to beat their opponent. With all those cheering, this game equals FUN!
Important Instructions for the Flip Cup: Mostly Adults, but older Kids -Teenagers too!
- Solo Cups – 6-10 lined up on both sides of the table.
- Pour the beer or wine less than half of each cup. Maybe, even less than that. Of course, replace with non-alcoholic beverages for the younger folks. .
- Two Players
- Drink the drink
- Place cup by edge of table
- Flip the cup to turn it upside side down on table
- When cup is flipped – move on too…
- Drink next cup and follow the same until the last cup is upside down
- Place plastic on floor for liquid spilling or have a stain cleaner on hand. (smiles)
