Imaginative Activities for Kids: Put on a play – Please Remind Me

Hi, Since I’m all about motion and play I thought I’d share some imaginative activities for kids to do on cold or rainy days. When I was little my 3 brothers and I spent many cold/rainy days putting on our own plays and they are fond memories for me. This first series is a selection of low cost theatrical plays that kids can do with very few props and/or costumes that I found on I hope your kids enjoy them! Cara Zara

SETTING: This play can be performed anywhere.

(Rachel is standing onstage, center. Frances enters, stage right.)

Frances: Sure I can. What is it?

Rachel: Can you remind me to give this to Eric? Don’t forget. He left it at my house.

Frances: O.K., I won’t forget.

(Rachel walks away, stage left. Kenny enters, stage right.)

Frances: Hey! Kenny! Come here a second will you?

(Kenny walks over to Frances.)

Kenny: Yeah? Did you want me?

Kenny: You bet. I can do that. No problem!

(Kaleigh walks over to Kenny.)

Kaleigh: Sure, no problem.

(Kenny exits, stage left. Eric enters, stage right.)

(Eric walks over to Kaleigh.)

Eric: O.K.

Kaleigh: Well, would you do me the world’s biggest favor? Can you remind me to remind Kenny to remind Frances to remind Rachel that she needs to give something to you? It’s really, really, really important.

Eric: Sure, no sweat.

Kaleigh: Thanks!

(Kaleigh exits, stage left. Rachel enters stage right, carrying a bag.)

(Rachel walks over to Eric.)

Eric: Will you do me a huge favor? I need you remind me to remind Kaleigh to remind Kenny to remind Frances to remind you that you need to give something to me. It’s really, really, really, really important.

You left these at my house. But it isn’t really all that important.

(Eric opens bag to reveal a pair of sweat socks.)
