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 PBSKids.org. I hope your kids enjoy them! Cara Zara
The Family Couch
A couch that faces out to audience;Costumes: Everyday clothes.
SETTING: A family living room.
(Kenny enters and sees the empty couch.)
Kenny: All right! The whole sofa to myself!
(He sits down and stretches across the whole thing. Zoe enters.)
Zoe: I’ve got to get in here… Excuse me…
Kenny: Yeah, I’ll move over.
(Zoe sits down on the couch. Claudio enters.)
Claudio: Can you move over please? I like to be really comfortable.
(Claudio sits down. Jessica enters.)
Jessica: Can you please move over just a little bit?
(Jessica sits down. Ray enters.)
Ray: Can you scoot over?… Thanks.
(Kenny moves and Ray sits down. Alisa enters.)
Alisa: I need to find a place please. You know, just move over!
(Alisa sits. Caroline enters.)
Caroline: Oh, I think I’ll try to squeeze in please.
(Caroline squeezes onto the couch. Kenny is pushed off onto the floor.)
Kenny: Ah! The whole floor to myself!
(The rest of the kids are still squished on the couch. They have pained looks on their faces.)
