Fun Mitzvah Activities

Bar and Bat Mitzvah activities provide that “extra bit of fun and variety” to ensure all your guests are busy, entertained and happy throughout your entire event. Activities provide exciting options for guests who want to interact and have fun through games, technology and interactive crafts.
Thirteen-year-old teens are a mixed bag of kids, depending on birth order, friend groups, parenting-style, schools, etc.  Some Mitzvah-aged kids are socially and emotionally ready for dancing, while others are not yet prepared for that kind of interaction. Activities often give kids who don’t want to dance an opportunity to feel a part of the event without having to place themselves in an uncomfortable situation.
There are tons of entertainment activities available for Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. According to one of Mitzvah List’s favorite vendors, Star Trax, activities should be easy to use, appropriate for both males and females, and space and power-sensitive.  Geoff Kretchmer, owner of Star Trax, said, “it is critical that the company providing the activity have well-trained staff to run the activity, introduce it to the kids, and provide a fun and safe environment so that kids feel comfortable approaching and playing these games. It’s also important that the company personnel provide appropriate supervision so these games are treated gently and that control is maintained at all times.  Staff should be responsible for moving kids through at a reasonable pace allowing everyone to participate and play.”
So, what are the hottest activities around?  Here are some of Mitzvah List’s favorites:

Fun Mitzvah Activities

Candle Lighting Ceremonies

While the focus of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah celebration is the Mitzvah Child, it is also a great opportunity to recognize the special people in your child’s life. It takes a village to raise a child. Recognizing those who have instilled values, shared laughs, tears, holidays and life experiences makes a Mitzvah Celebration complete. A candle lighting ceremony is a wonderful way to honor family and friends that make up your village. Since there are many variations of a candle lighting ceremony, we consulted with Claudia from It Could Be Verse to learn about the different candle lighting options.
 
For more than 20 years, It Could Be Verse has turned your thoughts, feelings and emotions into warm, witty and wonderful poems, speeches and toasts. Their writing is original, distinctive and tailored to your individual needs. For a new twist on a candle lighting, It Could Be Verse offers the puzzle ceremony.Whether it’s honoring guests at your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah candle lighting or puzzle ceremony or making a toast at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, wedding, birthday or anniversary or honoring/roasting a colleague at a corporate dinner, It Could Be Verse will say it for you with humor, taste and warmth.
We asked Claudia several questions about candle lighting ceremonies:
 
How many candles are in a traditional candle lighting ceremony? A traditional candle lighting ceremony has thirteen candles, but this number is flexible. Make sure you do what works for you and your family.

Is there a certain order that a candle lighting ceremony follows? Usually the memorial candle come first because you don’t want to end the ceremony on a sad note. It usually follows with grandparents; aunts/uncles/cousins; great aunts/great uncles; family friends; the child’s friends which can be all together or divided between camp, school and/or sports teams; siblings and then parents. It Could Be Verse usually likes to add a candle at the end for everyone.

What is a Puzzle Ceremony? A puzzle ceremony is a twist on a traditional candle lighting. It Could Be Verse enlarges 2 photos…..one of your child as a baby and 1 current photo. .The current photo is cut up into as many pieces as honorees. As each honoree called up, they place a puzzle piece onto the mounted baby photo, visually turning your child into who they are today. The parents place the last piece as they are the ones who have truly completed their child.

What is a Past, Present and Future Candle Lighting?     A Past, Present and Future candle lighting ceremony is a shorter version of a traditional candle lighting ceremony. Instead of lighting the traditional 13 candles, only 3 candles are lit – one that represents the past, one for the present and one for the future. The Past Candle can be a memory candle, for grandparents and/or other relatives. The Present Candle is lit by the child’s immediate family. The Future Candle is lit by the child’s friends.

Do candle lighting ceremonies need to rhyme? There is no rule that candle lighting ceremonies have to rhyme. However, a rhyming candle lighting ceremony makes it easier to read and more enjoyable to listen to.
 
Candle Lighting Display by Flowers by Amore
Are there any other times at a Bar or Bat Mitzvah to recognize family and friends? The Mitzvah Child’s parent usually give a toast at the celebration. While toasting the Mitzvah Child, this is a great opportunity to thank the guests for coming and being a part of your child’s life. It Could Be Verse also writes toasts, bimah speeches and more to enhance your celebration.

Prizes and Giveaways on the Dance Floor

Many people equate the success of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah with the number of guests on the dance floor.  For kids, Bar and Bat Mitzvahs parties can get repetitive. Many kids on “the circuit” have 2-3 Bar or Bat Mitzvahs a weekend! For this reason, many parents choose to have fun dance floor giveaways and prizes as an incentive to get guests dancing. The giveaways and prizes serve several purposes, but most importantly are lots of fun!
So what is the difference between dance floor prizes and giveaways?
Dance Floor Giveaways are favors passed out by the entertainers on the dance floor, encouraging guests to join in and dance. These things are usually inexpensive, simple to hand out and easy to wear.
Dance Floor Prizes are prizes given to the guests who are working hard to make the child’s party great and those that are winning contests and prizes. Kids and adults will dance and participate more if dance floor prizes are handed out. Prizes are usually larger more specialized items
So what are the best Dance Floor Giveaways and Prizes? We asked some of our favorite entertainment companies around for ideas on what will get kids and adults out on the dance floor:
With over 20 years of experience in the social event market, Star Trax Events provides nearly every element in producing a great event, including MCs, DJs, dancers, lighting, staging, event consulting, photo products, activities, giveaways, valet parking, and much more! Star Trax high-energy MCs guarantee that your dance floor is filled with magic, excitement and energy.  Geoff Kretchmer, owner of Star Trax, recommends getting prizes for 20% of the kids. He suggests that parents get a variety of items that attract boys and girls of all ages including apparel, gift cards and fun “chachkies.” Geoff believes that giveaways should be chosen carefully and when possible affixed to some part of the body. He prefers items like: sunglasses, necklaces, hats, bracelets, fun ties, rings, etc. Items like balls, baton and flashlights get tossed around on the dance floor and can create unnecessary chaos. Star Trax recommends that parents order approximately three giveaways per child. It is important that entertainers hand out giveaways throughout the event so that guests are not over-saturated at any specific time.
 
Cloud 9 Special Events has successfully entertained thousands of events nationwide for almost two decades. They have a fully interactive staff consisting of MCs, DJs, Dancers, Choreography, Lighting, Sound, Staging, Touring, and Live performance. We asked Jamez Frederick, owner of Cloud 9 his advice on the best prizes and giveaways. For prizes, Cloud 9 recommends gift cards. Not only are they easy to put away (so they don’t get lost or taken), kids don’t know the exact amount of the gift card so it adds excitement. Jamez and his team also love items that glow and blink. Kids love to receive these items on the dance floor, they are inexpensive and add an element of fun and décor to your party.
 
 
Party It Up Events is a full service DJ, Emcee, Lighting and Photo Booth/Digital Photos company. With more than a decade and a half providing entertainment services to metro Detroit and beyond, they not only provide the best services around, but they also work alongside the best companies in the business to assure your event is amazing and perfect! Keith Glenn, owner of Party It Up Events suggests giving gift cards to places like Starbucks or 7-11 for prizes. Popular giveaways are things like sunglasses, beaded necklaces, hats, glow bracelets, necklaces and rings, LED lit multi colored foam sticks and blow up items. Keith suggests that all items are ready to pass out before the party so that the emcees, dances and DJs are not side tracked during your event getting these items ready. Keith also cautions about ordering glow sticks during colder months because if they freeze during shipment, they will not work at your event.
Stealth DJs Mobile Disc Jockey Service is passionate about dancing and maintains a high level of energy, while providing fun and excitement through music, games and dancing. They realize that each of their events is unique and ensures the success by customizing each party to the child’s specifications. Stealth DJ’s professional MCs will also act as an event coordinator to ensure that everything flows smoothly throughout the celebration. Eric Cone, owner of Stealth DJs suggests giving out prizes only when they are earned. He suggests at least six big prizes that are unusual such as LED disco lights, fun pillows, big candy, lava lamps, gift cards, card games, clothing and the like. The prizes can be tied to your theme or the game that is being played. Eric and his team prefer giveaways that you can wear. Some of his favorite items are LED jewelry, sunglasses, feather boas, fedora hats, beaded necklaces, logo t-shirts and the like. Eric cautions that glow necklaces, glow bracelets or glow sticks that you have to “crack” to activate, usually end up on the floor and are not appreciated. Similarly, bouncy balls are thrown around during the entire party and therefore not suggested.
 
Music in Motion will create the ultimate Bar or Bat Mitzvah experience. They understand the importance of your child’s special day and their attention to detail and superb customer service will ensure your party has its own unique flair. Music in Motion provides great value with their customized non-stop entertainment with high energy MCs and Party Motivators. Ross Reimer, owner of Music in Motion told us that the best prizes are gift cards, fun novelty items from places like Five Below and during colder months, fun winter hats. One hot trend is having a big prize such as Beats headphones or Apple TV that can be used to entice kids that wouldn’t normally dance onto the dance floor. For giveaways Ross and his team recommend foam batons, top hats, LED tentacle hats, flashing expandable LED glow balls, finger lights and 22 inch glow necklaces. Ross suggests that parents have prizes ready to go so the entertainment company can spend time on the dance floor instead of getting giveaways ready to pass out.
In addition to asking some of the best companies around, we also asked tons of 12 and 13 year olds on the circuit their favorite prizes and giveaways. Favorite prizes included: fuzzy or wool socks, Nike Elite Socks, big candy, fun pillows, Popsockets, headphones, speakers and gift cards. Favorite giveaways included: flat hats, beanies and glow stuff like the sticks, glasses and necklaces. Most of the kids agreed that the glow stuff makes the parties more fun, but no one takes it home. Kids unanimously agreed that having one expensive prize that is given away at the end of the night creates lots of fun and motivates people to dance.
Dance floor giveaways and prizes are used for fun and motivation at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. Wherever you are located, the consensus is that kids love gift cards and big candy as prizes. We love big candy from Rocket Fizz since they have the best selection around. As giveaways, kids love glow items and clothing. Whatever you choose for your child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah, if you choose something fun, you won’t go wrong!

Valet Parking at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs

Mitzvah List recently received an email from a Mitzvah Mom asking if it is worth the expense of valet parking at her son’s Bar Mitzvah. As a host or hostess, your top priority is to make sure that your guests are comfortable and having fun. Having your guests park and retrieve their car in unpredictable weather conditions can change an otherwise perfect an event. Valet parking is the first and last impression of your event. At Mitzvah List we feel that valet parking is a necessity.
With so many valet companies out there, how do you choose which is best? We spoke with Richie Abbo of Elite Parking Valet to ask what to look for when hiring a valet company.
   
Since 1988, Elite Parking has provided professional valet parking for events and businesses in the metro Detroit area. Serving all of Southeast Michigan, Elite has the staff, equipment, and experience to handle parking for events of any size, from 10 guests to 5,000 guests. Elite’s top priorities are safety and aggressive hospitality. They maintain full liability protection and offer competitive prices that can’t be beat.
Richie told us what to look for when hiring a valet company:
1.  Staff: A professional valet staff can make or break your event. You are trusting your valet company with millions of dollars in cars, not to mention everything that is inside those cars. Having trustworthy staff is extremely important. Ask your valet company about their hiring and interview process. Elite maintains a vigorous application and interview process which includes two interviews, a driving record check, reference check and a try out before any staff member is hired. Make sure your valet staff will be professionally dressed and ready to anticipate your guests’ needs.
2.  Reputation: Before hiring any valet company, ask for reference and make sure to check them. Asking your event planner or members of the community for their input is always a great idea.
3.  Insurance: To ensure that you and your guests are protected, it is essential that your valet company is licensed and insured. Make sure they carry general liability insurance to cover injury to a person or property, garage keeper’s liability insurance to cover damage to any vehicle in the parking lot that is under the care of the valet company and workers compensation to cover the employees in the event of injury. Ask your valet company to provide you with proof of the foregoing.
4.  Experience: In the valet parking business, there are many fly by night companies. Anyone can put up a sign, order jackets for staff members and call themselves a valet company. Check to see how long your valet company has been in business. And again, check references!
5.  Price: With anything, the cheapest price isn’t the only factor to consider. Instead, focus on the best value. Make sure your valet company’s price is competitive, but don’t choose based on price alone. As the old saying goes, sometimes you get what you pay for.
If you have an upcoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah, wedding, Shiva, corporate event or more, contact Richie and the staff at Elite Parking or check out the Mitzvah List vendor directory for all of your valet needs.
