Imaginative Activities for Kids: Put on a play – The Family Couch

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
