Jewish DJs - Bar & Bat Mitzvah Contests & Games
Here are just a few ideas...feel free to suggest your own...
The guests become a part of the show by singing
songs with the help of our video monitor and an instrumental track
of their song. As you would expect, this is a big hit with the
Huggy Bear: Play modern music for the kids. Have them dance
and sing along with the song. Call out a low number (2, 3 or 4) and
make the kids get into smaller groups of that amount. All the
"leftover" kids or the last to get into a group are "out".
Coke/Pepsi: Put half of the children on one side and the other
half across from them. You call "Coke" one side runs to the knees of
the other side, call "Pepsi" they do the same to the opposite side.
"Pepsi Cola" means the sides switch names, and if you call the b/b's
name then everybody freezes.
Finish the Song: Divide the kids into numerous groups of
whatever size. Choose two initial groups, play a song, then stop the
music. The first group to recite the next five words of the song
correctly stays in. Move on to two more groups. Keep playing until
you have only one group left. These are the winners.
Pass the Object: When the music stops, whoever has the object
being passed is out. Be creative with the music and the object.
Name that Tune: Played in groups and the kids can ask the
adults for help.
Freeze Contest: When the music stops the kids freeze.
"Thank you so much for being such a terrific DJ at both
our children's Mitzvahs. You were so easy to work with,
from the first phone call inquiring about your services,
to the last moment of the party! Your calm and
easy-going manner really helped while planning a big
event. Also, your "Fun & Games Lady" did a great job
getting all the kids up and dancing and having so much
fun! You were also very sensitive to the needs of the
adults, keeping the kids busy and entertained during the
cocktail hour and keeping the music quieter and calmer
for the adults at dinner time. Overall, a terrific job!!
