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
Remind Me Please
A paper bag, sweat socks.Costumes: Everyday clothes.
SETTING: This play can be performed anywhere.
(Rachel is standing onstage, center. Frances enters, stage right.)
Rachel: Hey, Frances! Can you do me a favor?
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?
Frances: Can you remind me to remind Rachel that she has to give something to Eric? It’s really important.
Kenny: You bet. I can do that. No problem!
(Frances exits, stage left. Kaleigh enters, stage right.)
Kenny: Yo! Kaleigh! Can you come here?
(Kaleigh walks over to Kenny.)
Kenny: Yeah, can you, like, remind me to remind Frances to remind Rachel that she has to give something to Eric? It’s really, really important.
Kaleigh: Sure, no problem.
(Kenny exits, stage left. Eric enters, stage right.)
Kaleigh: Hey Eric! Can you come here for a second?
(Eric walks over to Kaleigh.)
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 exits, stage left. Rachel enters stage right, carrying a bag.)
Eric: Hey Rachel! Can you come here for a sec?
(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.
Rachel: Oh! That reminds me…Here this is for you.
(Rachel hands bag to Eric.)
You left these at my house. But it isn’t really all that important.
(Eric opens bag to reveal a pair of sweat socks.)
