Gragger Noisemaker Bible Craft

In A Nutshell

Graggers are noisemakers used during the Feast of Purim which is a Jewish holiday to celebrate the deliverance of the Jews in the book of Esther. The noisemakers are used during the reading of the Bible story of Queen Esther. Children can make their own Gragger to participate in the Esther The Beautiful Bible lesson. See Related Activities. This can also be used as a New Year's Eve noisemaker.

Subscriber Ideas

  • Bev from West Virginia made Graggers for a New Year's celebration. She added strips of card stock printed with things God wants us to do and included them in the bottles along with a penny for age in years for each. Children added curling ribbon and confetti crosses. The preschoolers would shake them up. She would then read off the actions in each child's bottle and they would act them out.
