Make Time for Some Dramatic Play on this Fun Friday!




Magic Clay


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.



Key Take-Aways

.

  • 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!
