Be happy peula in Purim / Adar Spirit

Topic: Adar/Purim

Written by: Netanel Afek, Cleveland

Age: 9th grade (leadership training)

Goal: to teach the chanichim some Purim/Adar games!

Step 1: The Happy Machine

First of all, to get into the mood, atmosphere, and the right spirit, well play the happy machine. The way the game goes is, you go around the circle (preferably sit everyone facing each other) and pick someone to start off with a sound. Whatever sound it may be, have him repeat it over and over and over and over and over again. While hes repeating it, have someone else join in with a different sound, and so on. Youll find that your chanichim can be really creative about strange and random stuff when everybodys doing it, you can just let it go for a little while (but it loses the effect after too long) look back at it, and just start laughing. Trust me, it would not be hard.

Step 2: Ima, my tummy hurts!

Ok, now that were all in funny and laughy mood, we can put on a short skit. This game is usually played with the following skit, but feel free to add in your own crazy and funny lines (hi sweety, how was military academy?, we dissected chickens today whats for dinner?, its my nose no, its my eye no, its my pinky no, its my left arm no, its the bottom of my third toe on my left foot no, its my tummy! Ima, my tummy hurts!, mom can kick/tickle (gently!) the kid to see if hes really dead, etc, etc, etc!). make sure you change actors and let all the kids play.

Actors: Mom

Kid

Doctor

Kid comes home and says: Ima, my tummy hurts!

Mom: we better call the Doctor then

(the Doctor arrives) Weeoo weeoo weeoo

(kid falls to the floor)

mom: oh my, hes dead!

At this point, you, the director, shout CUT (at the top of your lungs or not) and say that was too boring!!! It needs to be more ______________ ! (do this many times. Each time insert another accent or style: British ("mommy - my bloody tummy seems to hurt! by golly - we betta' call the docto'!), western, dramatic, valley girl, japanese, ballet dancer, chassidish, and anything else that comes to mind. LET THE CHANICHIM think of ideas if they can).

Step 3: Adar Races

Divide the chanichim into two group, and make every two chanichim a pair not necessarily from the same group. The two teams run around in two circles, and the moment you say a certain word, like chashverosh! ester and the such, they have to do a certain action. List below. Kids usually like this game cause they can be very active.

Achashverosh get your pair on your shoulders (rosh)

Vaizata make a bridge with your body, and have your pair crawl under it

Adar Bet join hands with your pair, both of you lift a leg, and jump together to a specific point

Megillah have someone lie on the ground, and the pair should jump criss-crosses on top of him (on his two sides)

Hamantashen give your pair a piggy-back ride

Bigtan Vateresh join hands with your pair from behind, and race, sideways to a point

On certain actions, youd have to say switch at some point. For some actions youll have to set a start and finish line. Keep in mind youll have to practice these a lot before the kids get what theyre supposed to do fun time (even just looking at the chanichim doing it) guaranteed.
