Play “My Menorah” Together
Download the app “My Menorah” and play it together with your child, setting the scene for the following activities on today’s theme: Taking vs. Receiving
Open the Gift Box to find activities that reinforce the difference between taking and receiving.
Create two comic strips that each tell a story- one about taking and the other about receiving (can do as individuals or as a family activity). You can download JI Studio and use the Backgrounds > Comics to make a comic together as a family.
Create 3 Word Lists
Come up with as many words as you can to add to the list
- “words used when taking” (example: “I want…”)
- “words used when receiving” (example: “thank you”)
- “words used when giving” (example: “for you”)
Each family member takes a turn acting out a scene in which someone is either taking or receiving. Can be done in partners or teams as well. Special attention can be paid to facial expressions and body language. Remember: there is no talking allowed in charades, so be creative with how each actor will express the scene!
