Mischakim (games) take place everyday in the afternoon. For the first day, chanachim (kids) where divided into 3 groups. One group passed around the frisbee (above), another played Gaga in the MLC (below), and the third group played kickball. Then they rotated stations so that each group had a chance to play each game.
In Gaga (above), a ball is thrown in the air and as it bounces 3 times everyone recites, “GA, GA, GA!” Then anyone can touch the ball. The objective of the game is to not let the ball touch your legs/feet. The ball can not be picked up or tapped more than once in a row. Kids bounce the ball against walls and try to hit other’s feet. The last one in wins!
Mischakim is a favorite time of day for many chanachim. It provides a place for them to get active, develop a sense of sportsmanship, spend bonding time with other chanachim and members of Tzevet (counselors), and have fun!
