On Purim, it is customary to send baskets (containing at least 2 different types of food) to friend's and family. I like to use strawberry containers. Decorate with ribbon (weaving is a great activity for 3's and 4's!) and fill with colorful tissue paper and treats! The children are always excited to exchange their baskets!
