Push Pop Graggers

Push Pop Graggers


Who ever said push pops were only for food and desserts? They also make the perfect graggers with endless possibilities of creativity and design!

Here are three ideas, for Queen Esther, Mordechai and a clown, but you can decorate them with anything Purim related.

You can order push pops online in bulk from many different sites, including this one.

Remove the top of the gargger, pull down the handle part so that the entire container is fillable. Fill with any kind of noise-maker. I used gems and gum balls, which can be a choking hazard, so for little ones consider using colored cereal or even sprinkles.

Put the lid back on, and if you do not want them to be openable, seal them using a glue gun or extra strong glue dots.

Now you are ready to decorate!

I made cloaks using tulle for both Queen Esther and Mordechai. I used glue dots to stick the cloaks to the push pops. The crowns are made from adhesive paper, and I stuck the gemstone to Queen Esther’s crown with another glue dot. Mordechai's head covering is a plush ribbon which I curled around and adhered with a glue dot.

I liked that they didn’t have any faces as it gives it a creative, artistic look, but if you think it is missing a real face, simply add stickers, googly eyes or even use a permanent.

For the clown, I used stickers for the eyes and décor. I stuck the nose and hat on with glue dots.

This is easy and fun and a completely different take on graggers! So have fun and let your imagination run wild.

You can even use these as a form of mishloach manot for kids, by filling them with different treats and nosh.
