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: Playfulness
Tonight’s activities provide the opportunity to just have fun with each other and laugh!
Every family member lays on the floor in a way that allows everyone’s head to be resting on someone else’s stomach. The first person starts the game by saying, “ha.” The next person says, “ha ha.” The third person says, “ha ha ha” and all players continue the game until everyone is actually laughing, and everyone’s heads are bouncing on the laughing bellies.
One Legged Laughs
One player is chosen to stand on one foot for as long as s/he can. Other players are not allowed to touch the stander or throw anything at them, but they take turns doing whatever they can to make the person laugh. See how long it takes to laugh without losing your balance.
All family members stand in a circle. One person is chosen to stand in the center and throw a tissue into the air. Everyone must laugh as hard as they can and try- with only breath and not body parts- to keep the tissue in the air. The moment the tissue hits the floor, everyone must remain silent. The first person to crack a laugh is the next person to have a turn tossing the tissue into the air.
