Personal Mishlochei Manot, XS size

 edible flower pot

In my last blog spot I wrote that this year I am preparing our family Mishlochei Manot (Purim food baskets) ahead of time to avoid the Purim-craze traffic.

It allows me to keep calm,

knowing one big project is behind me,

and that I have more time for —

Yet another project!!!

{ Its the same story with laundry baskets that seem to fill themselves up as soon as you proudly empty it. And the sink. And the garbage. And the recycling bin. I’m sure you have no idea what I’m talking about…}

The kids started to sense that I might get bored having nothing to do, so they asked if I can help them make Mishlochei Manot for their friends.

I somehow convinced them it should be something small and symbolic, and that’s how these cute Mishlochei Manot were born:

The main idea is to give something small, cute, fast and creative. Something you will be happy to get and happy to give. And of course – DIY+K*

(*Do It Yourself + Kids).

Here are two simple ideas for Personal Mishlochei Manot for friends in school, friends at work, and friends on a diet.
