Make Time for Some Dramatic Play on this Fun Friday!
Magic Clay can be played at home with family and friends, in a classroom or with a community group. This experience encourages imagination and both fine and gross motor creative movement.
How to play
Participants stand in a circle or stand behind their chairs if in a classroom.
The music will begin.
The first person will begin with the magic clay and pantomime molding the clay into an object.
They will pretend to use the object for a few seconds. Think of this as a 5-10 second performance.
The rest of the group is not guessing what has been made. They are just observing and enjoying the short performance.
The person with the clay will pretend to squish the magic clay into a ball and toss it to the next person.
Repeat the steps until all players have had a turn. It usually takes 2-3 rounds for participants to warm-up their imagination and creativity.
Think outside of the box. There are so many things that can be made.
Put thought into your movements when using the imaginary object.
Have fun and be Dramatic!
