All About Queen Esther {Preschool Homeschool}

All About Queen Esther {Preschool Homeschool}

This week, we’ve been celebrating Purim (the official date is February 23rd this year)!   The kids (preschool and toddler age) have been having a blast learning all about Queen Esther.  Here’s some of the activities we’ve been working on:

Monday: Introduction to Esther

Esther Coloring Page

 Coloring Queen Esther

Tuesday: Esther’s Beauty Treatments

For this day, I had two preschool age girls at the house, so beauty treatments were easy to pull off.  If you have boys, you might have to get a little more creative!

  • Nail Painting
  • Lotion on hands
  • Combing hair
  • Talking about taking care of our bodies
  • Esther was beautiful inside and out (people favored her because she was kind and polite)

Beautiful Queen Esther

 Beauty treatments fit for a queen!

Wednesday: Cast of Characters

Today, we talked about the different characters and acted out the story.  I was planning on making stick puppets from these figures, but the kids loved dressing up and acting it out themselves, so we stuck with that.  We also made graggers and listened to a 1 minute Queen Esther Story that I downloaded from Amazon.

  • More Esther Coloring Pages from “What’s in the Bible?”
  • Making Graggers of our paper plates
  • Listening to the story on audio
