Making Our Own Musical Plays
Our most recent play was "Arachne and Athena", based on the Greek myth which Joey has been reading this year. Ricky played the lyre at the beginning and end of the play and narrated the story. The kids and Mommy lashed bamboo sticks into a pretend tapestry loom for weaving. A large silk served as a hiding place for when Arachne (Mommy) turned into a spider (Wilson)! Joey wrote the play and created the costumes, as well as played the part of Athena.
Our plays were short and easy to remember. If someone forgot a line, we improvised! Including music and singing helped with the flow of the plays.
