If you want to continue this game until the kids get really bored, go ahead, and just keep asking questions about yerushlayim.




Game #2 –Israeli Postman

each kid has the name of a place in Israel, and then someone would stand in the middle and call out 2 places, and those 2 ppl would have to switch before the person in the middle took their seat. 

Game #3 is the same thing, except its Jerusalem Postman and the kids should all wear the crowns that look like the old city wall.  Have the kids look at their place in Yerushalayim, and then have them tie the crown to their head with the attached strings.  Play this game until it gets old, making sure to do numerous “special deliveries”
