Passover Game: Like The Four Sons

This one is more of an activity than a game.

When we got to the four sons, I shuffled and passed around index cards to each participant. Each card contained four connected images about neutral subjects. Each participant had to choose which image to associate with which of the four sons (children).

This is a little psychology game, and, as you might expect, everyone had different interpretations for which image corresponded to which son, and why.

You will need to prepare enough index cards for each participant, and more. Prepare these before Passover starts. Some suggested cards include:
  • Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter
  • Love, Fear, Hate, Indifference
  • Red, Blue, Green, Yellow
  • Zero, One, Two, Three
  • East, West, North, South
  • Square, Circle, Triangle, Line
  • Sarah, Rivkah, Rachel, Leah
  • Lulav, Hadassim, Aravot, Etrog
  • Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars
  • Dog, Cat, Horse, Snake
  • Brain, Arm, Heart, Leg
  • Television, Computer, Car, Microwave
  • Barbie, Monopoly, Teddy Bear, Slinkie
  • Hammer, Saw, Wrench, Drill
  • Meat, Fruit, Vegetable, Bread
  • Baseball, Football, Basketball, Chess
  • Violin, Guitar, Drum, Piano
  • Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division
  • Fire, Air, Earth, Water
  • John, George, Paul, Ringo
Of course, the possibilities are endless.
