Printable Purim Masks!

By Brenda Ponnay

I’ve always loved the story of Esther–the beautiful Jewish queen of Persia who saved her people from an evil advisor to the king who was plotting to kill all the Israelites in the land. This story is still celebrated today in a Jewish holiday called Purim which this year starts at sundown this Saturday (March 11th) and ends the evening of Sunday, March 12th.

characters from the story of Esther

To bring some of that fun of Purim here I thought I would create some easy printable face masks that you can download and print at home and play along. Have your children act out the parts as you read them the ancient story.

King Ahasuerus (aka King Xerxes)
Queen Vashti
Queen Esther

Queen Vashti is suspicious

Simply print and cut then carefully cut out the black eye-holes. You can attach a dowel or popsicle stick to hold the mask to your face or even punch holes and attach some elastic string.

    I notice it says, “for personal use only” when I printed  out the masks.  
    Can I copy them for my church childcare?

    Do you print these out on 8 1/2 x 11 inch paper or do you need something bigger? What size paper do you need for these? I don’t want to use a lot of color on a test page.

    • Yes, these were designed to print on 8.5×11.  🙂

    • yes! 8.5 x 11 inch paper.
