Bring some your favorite characters to life in today’s Home Activity! Choose a favorite storybook, but make sure it’s one that includes lots of action or characters with different emotions. Fun options include: The Day the Crayons Quit, Wemberly Worried, The Very Impatient Caterpillar, any Elephant and Piggie books, or fairytale stories.
Read the story together, and point out all the ways the characters are feeling or acting.
Now, assign roles. Involve siblings and parents, and really get into character. For an even greater challenge, add props, costume pieces, entrances and exits. Don’t forget to pay attention to where the “audience” is so they can see all your action and hear all your lines. We would love to see lots of action, emotion and “playing” to your audience.
Send us a picture or video of your Storytelling scene at firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us on social media @stagelightarts. Have fun with this!
