Want to add a little adventure to your at-home routine? Luckily we have everything we need to make magic happen in our very own homes!
This week is all about taking inspiration from your very own bookshelf and bringing your favorite characters to life through imaginative play.
Theatre makers use their imaginations to transform one thing into another. A block of wood? Now it’s a set piece! A scrap of fabric? Now it’s featured on stage as a prop! This week, we explore improvisation (or making things up without a script!) to challenge ourselves to be creative with things we already have: our bodies, our voices, our imaginations…and some household objects, too!
Playgrounds are closed and the landscape of outdoor play has changed. This week, we’re exploring new ways to play outside, without any equipment. We’ll move our bodies, activate our imaginations, and get our cooped up energy out. Spring is finally here, and we’re gonna make the most of it!
Shelter-in-place is full of challenges for people of all ages. Young people may find their routine of school, play, and friends disrupted. Older relatives or folks living alone may feel lonely, disconnected, or disappointed to miss out on time with rapidly growing young family members. This week, we will explore interview techniques to help bridge this gap, and connect young people with their relatives in a new way.
This week, we’re using our imaginations to bend time and space. What will we think about this period when we’re in the future looking back? What would someone from the past think about the present? How can we travel without leaving our homes?
We’ve got five main activities – plus a whole bunch of bonus activities. So jump in your time machine and let’s get exploring!
