Bayit Cham

There's a program at my 2nd Grader's school called "Bayit Cham," which loosely translated means "warm home." On Thursday it will be our turn to host the 5 kids in my son's group. Here are the parameters:

From 5:15-7:00 pm
Prepare fun activity (oh, yeah, completely in Hebrew!)
Prepare light dinner (Israelis eat the big meal at lunch...)

HELP! I need some ideas for an activity and for a dinner. The dinner can be made either before the kids get here or with them.

Have the kids wrap each other in toilet paper. One at a time with them trying to wrap the kid without ripping the paper. Should be good for close to an hour.

We did this with Aviv's gan....which reminds me, I'm also supposed to be hosting next time.

Aviv came home with a crown he decorated, and some sort of king's cape/outfit made out of paper, and a cardboard sword. It was cute, and way too much work for me. :)

You could have them all make their own pizzas........they could sit around the table and help to make the dough, then give them each a piece of dough to roll and flatten, have bowls of cheese and toppings, send them to play while you cook it and set the table. ?????

Purim is coming (and that means you know what is less than 2 months away!) so how about having them make some sort of container for mishloach manot? Basket? Clay bowl? Decorate a box?

Or, have a "relative" show up with a portable musical instrument and entertain, teach a song, and end with shirah b'tzibbur, and a circle dance (a hora, just like the soldiers and kibbutzniks did each night in the old days --- in the movies, at least!)
