Moses & the Amalekites game

 And finally, the story of God helping the Israelites to beat the Amalekites.

You will need:
  • A stick.
What to do:
Essentially you are playing musical bumps, but instead of music you have a stick.
  1. Someone is Moses, holding up the stick.
  2. Children dance round the room, miming 'fighting'.
  3. When the stick is lowered, they must immediately drop to the ground 'dead'. The last one to do so is out.
They loved this!

The only issue was that sometimes the 'fighters' got tired before Moses' arms did! I wonder how that worked out in real life? Of course, the adrenaline of having real people trying to kill you might make you keep going...
