One of our neighbors made very cute mishloach manos last year. She took mason jars and had the kids decorate them for Purim and then filled them with layers of nosh - nuts, chocolate chips, licorice bits, pretzels, dried fruit etc. - They really looked great. For me, I always do the school mishloach manos for most people and make a really nice meal for a couple of people who could really use it (new baby, disabled, etc.).

I'm dressing my son in a dragon,he looks adorable in it, would never know he could be a dragon with his innocent face, I know it's quite shocking, but I think it's cute, my mother was quite shocked, so AIm pretty sure people here will be, but he really is cute, and I got it on sale.

For the past 3 years I've come with a great, easy and relatively inexpensive idea for Mishloach Manot.

I buy small containers with covers and small aluminum pans with covers. I make 2 different salads (tomato salad, eggplant salad, tabouli salad, mushroom salad, pasta salad, etc.) and put them in the small containers. I also bake a cake of some sort and bake them in the small pans. If I'm feeling REALLY industrious a small bottle of wine. This way, folks can use the salads and cake at their seudah.

No redeeming nutritional value, but...

Chocolate cake in a cheap pot, with green Laffy Taffy ropes coming out as stems of flowers, with some kind of fake flower (bought or drawn) attached to the stems.

This is a combo of a few ideas I've seen.

crayon- thanks for responding....
I actually DID think of that... but putting mousse inside.

but regardless of wether it's mousse or cake---- I'm afraid ppl will throw it out as who would find eating out of a flower pot tempting????

embarrassed

that's why I thought of posting as I'm pulling a blank on this one shock

You could make a cute note...or put it in a container in the pot...(and make it obvious that it's a CLEAN flower pot)...

there is a quote that goes something like

___ ____ a flower, I'd pick you!


And put together a few things that have flowers in it.
You can make a buntd cake in the shape of a flower. Or flower cookies...

Still thinking, will let you know if anything else Rolling Eyes Idea

I made my one batch of hamantashen (just to be yotzei) today and put it in the freezer. I sent my check for matonos l'evyonim this week. shalach monos we're sending thru the shul and the yeshiva. I have a costume that I wore to another event earlier in the year (who cares if ppl saw it already, it's a great costume), and I wrote my purimspiel months ago. (Creativity is not like a genie that you can summon on demand: creativity takes hold of you and it makes the demands. So if this means that a purimspiel suggests itself chanuka time, that's when it gets written.) I am waiting till rosh chodesh adar to put up the purim decorations, but otherwise I guess I am pretty much set for purim, too, except for the seudah.

oops--no--still have to send in the $ for shalach monos for the teachers. thanks for the reminder!

I have succeeded some years, and some yrs they all flop.

pinch the seams really, really tight. then pinch them a little tighter. you can make a rolled edge after pinching (like rolling down the top of a paper lunch sack) and pinch again.

that is exactly what I am going to do this year for my husbands friends. I did it one year it was so much fun and the best part is that some parents actually liked it kept there kids busy for at least an hour or so trying to open it. LOL fun to look at and make. enjoy making them. now if I can only think how I would be able to fit a beer bottle in the bottle without the hole getting to big I would be a maven. Very Happy any suggestions? bring them on!!!
