GOAL:On this week's Peula we are going to learn about the other aspects of lag Baomer

PROPS: color papers by number some with the word "question" on it, Dice

 

1. One of the "lag Baomer"'s customs is to light bonfires.

Lets imagine that we are sitting around the bonfire and everyone in his/her turn will say: "if I could throw something into the fire I would

  throw   _______________ “ (for example: All the wars in the world, the illness and the pains, the bad boy/girl inside of me…) warning- make sure that the chanichim won’t use insulting comments.

2. The second part of the peula is a game-quiz about Lag Baomer. The madrich/a will put the color papers in order according to number as a snake , then he/she will Split the chanichim into 2 teams. On each paper is written a number. Each team will throw the dice, the number they get is the number of steps they have to take. For example: if they get number 2, they will go over 2 papers. On some of the papers it written “Question” – when they get to that kind of paper the madrich will ask them a question. If a team doesn’t know the correct answer, they will lose their next turn. It is a contest between the teams which team will get more correct answers.
