Hanukkah Game: Pass the Potato
The potato latke has become an iconic symbol of Hanukkah. So why not sing a song about this wondrous little root vegetable and a play a fun game to boot? Gather the family around in a circle, grab a potato before it gets thrown in the latke fry oil, and have some old-fashioned fun with a familiar game.
What You Need:
- At least five people
- Music sheets
What You Do:
- Make sure everyone knows the lyrics and if not, make a cheat sheet with the lyrics written down:
- Once everyone has got the tune down, sit in a circle and sing the song while passing the potato around. Whoever is holding the potato when the singing stops, is the “latke” and has to sit out.
