Yom Yerushalayim school-ish resources

Last year there were a few things my daughter did in gan which I rather enjoyed related to Yom Yerushalayim and they are easy to replicate:

Counting Jerusalem stone They had a felt board, a large number of Jerusalem stone pictures (laminated and with aplix on the back) as well as number pictures. Match the number of stones to the number.

Using different arts and craft techniques to learn about locations in Jerusalem (such as Migdal David, windmill, old city gates.) This included mosaics, stickers, following the lines of a drawing with a variety of stuff, paint and glue. My favorite was coloring in gates that had been divided into various patterns.

Dice game: This was really for Yom Haatzmaut but it works here too. They had holepunched papers with many holes in a grid pattern. Children rolled dice and circled the respective number of holes with blue markers. I think punching that many holes is overkill, but i imagine one could equally use graph paper or dotted paper.

Jumping game Set up large Magen Davids on the floor as an obstacle course

I still like our resources on Rav Aryeh Levin. Open to suggestions, as always!
