Purim definitely is one of the Jewish holidays with the most preparations. It is not like Pesach, with constant cleaning, but more intense. I find that the best way to really enjoy the holiday is to get the kids involved as much as possible and focus on the joy it gives them.
Years ago I created a Kids’ Mitzvah Checklist for Purim to help my kids stay involved the whole holiday. I printed one for each child and hung them up on their bedroom door. We then added stickers to each square as they completed a mitzvah. After the holiday, we celebrated their completion with a special outing or treat!

I hope your kids enjoy it as much as mine did! Happy Purim!
