Have creative fun with your children. Make three clowns to set in a vase for a beautiful seuda centerpiece.


  • Hot glue gun, craft glue or white plastic glue and staples
  • Pencil, scissors and craft knife
  • 3 Styrofoam balls: 1 x 1-inch (2 ½ x 2 ½ cm)
  • 6 craft sticks (popsicle sticks)
  • Optional: 3 sticks, one each to make puppet longer
  • Fabric, 3 pieces of 3 x 5 inches (7 ½ x 12 ½ cm) cloth, sol (rubber-like sheets), metallic or crepe paper
  • 6 plastic eyes, 3 small pompoms, yarn (15 inches or 37 ½ cm) and other scrap material for beards and decorations
  • 3 pieces of 1 x 4-inch (2 ½ x 10cm) thin cardboard or metallic paper for the crown


  1. Glue 2 craft sticks together. Place the horizontal stick approximately two-thirds of the way up the horizontal stick (see picture).
  2. Fold fabric piece in half and cut a small hole in top center. Insert over stick form. Glue in place. Gather material at “waist” with yarn for a belt.
  3. Make an incision in the Styrofoam ball and glue onto the top stick.
  4. Draw the crown, cut out and attach. Attach eyes, pom pom nose, mouth and other decorations.

Optional: Replace the vertical craft stick with a large lollipop. Do not remove the cellophane wrapper. Glue a craft stick horizontally across the lollipop stick and continue decorating the clown as above.

Enjoy your creations! Purim Sameach!
