Dressing up on Purim is so much fun and something most children look forward to the entire year. Use these instructions to create an array of hats and accessories to enhance a variety of costumes.  In the time it takes to say “abracadabra” (okay, just a bit longer than that) you can craft a cape worthy of any good king, queen, or “magician.”  The most incredible part is that it’s done with no needle and thread involved. How’s that for a Purim miracle!
