The every day routine, tiredness, lack of time and energy, makes it hard for us to find that perfect someone.
Either it’s about the knight in shining armour or a princess, the search can take months, even years.
A 2D image is actually not a very cool representation of the real person that you’ve never met, but it can help you get a few steps closer to the love of your life.
This way everyone is involved and is waiting for their turn to play the game, or act something out.
Very important: Remember to have a bag of small prizes or treats as incentives for good questions and involvement.
You could use a simple plastic toy telephone that doesn’t make noise, or any object that you can pretend is a phone, and lots of blocks on the floor next to the Seder table.
At any time during the Seder, you make a pretend ringing noise.
Many of us have fond memories of our family Seders.
Others just remember the grown ups reading the Haggadah round the table, as our tummies rumbled and we wondered if dinner was ever coming. Long before the days of multimedia, in the times of the Mishna, the Seder was a audio-visual re-enactment of the going out of Egypt for the children.
Well, many years ago, our people were enslaved in Egypt by a very powerful King called Pharaoh.
One day God appeared to me at the burning bush and told me to remove my shoes. God then told me that I was going to lead the Jews out of Egypt." This game gets young and old involved and is a lot of fun.
There is a hushed silence and you pick up the phone. According to your improvised one-sided conversation, it becomes clear that all children under 8 have to get down from the table and start building a pyramid.
You can get one or two of the older children to be the task masters and shout out orders to work faster, etc. If you have several children at the Seder, you can do a competition who can build the tallest tower/pyramid.
There are always methods to break the ice like an email or just talking and sharing each others experiences.
