Haman's Shrinking Hat: A Purim Game!

This is a fun movement game that could be played at school or at home or at a Purim carnival!

You will need:
A very big paper or fabric triangle for each player (newspaper works best)
Purim music

Let's Play!
1. Leader plays Purim music and players march in a circle, holding their triangles. When the music stops, each player folds his/her triangle in half and stands on it. The last player to do so is out.

2. As the music starts and stops, the paper triangles get smaller and smaller and the number of players fewer and fewer. Keep playing until only one player is left.

Hamantaschen--which are triangle shaped--are reminders of Haman's three-cornered hat.
