Child playing with a doll house

Creative Play

Taking inspiration from the creative play we see in classrooms, today we built a stage out of a box, wrote a script, grabbed some small toys, and made a movie!


Try using a free app, such as Shadow Puppet, to record, edit, and produce your very own movie. Movies can be shared with friends and family as a way to remain socially connected.
