Fun Passover Activities
- 2 Small Suitcases or Duffel Bags
- 2 Sets of Clothes ( for example pants, shirts, hat, socks, mittens, jacket)
How to Play
- Firstly, you need to divide the children into two equal groups.
- Now, fill in both the suitcases with similar items. For instance, each suitcase has a set of pants, a pair of socks, a hat, and so on.
- Now, make a line across the play area, which would indicate the goal line, for each team.
- To play the game, the first person in each of the teams needs to empty the suitcase and put on all the clothes. Then, he/she has to close the suitcase and run with it around the goal and back to the beginning, take off the outfit and put back in the suitcase
- Thereafter, he/she has to hand over the suitcase to the next person, who, in turn, would follow the same procedure as done by the first person and handover the suitcase to the third person.
- This chain would continue until the last person, from each team, completes the process. The team that finishes first is declared the winner.
Give A Clue
- Cards with verses from the Haggadah written on them
How to Play
- A slightly advanced version of charades, the game is primarily for the older age group.
- To play the game, the host has to prepare cards that would contain different verses from the Haggadah.
- Each participant has to choose a card and mime the sentence (verse) for the rest of the guests to guess the passage.
- The participant is not allowed to talk. However, he/she can give clues indicating how many words are in the verse or show that a word rhymes with another word by touching his ear.
- As soon as the passage has been guessed, it's the turn of the next participant to pick a card and enact the verse written on it.
- A maximum of 5 minutes should be given to each participant.
