Curtains up on Miffy!

This week, Miffy is using her imagination to put on a play for her family. From a swashbuckling pirate to the big bad wolf, Miffy is ready to put on a show!

Post a photo or video of your performance and tag Miffy’s Instagram and Facebook. Miffy is so excited to see your show!

Miffy Play - Final

Here is what you need for your living room performance:

A story!

A play is a fun, creative way to tell your favorite story. You can act out a story that you already know, such as Little Red Riding Hood, or you can make up a new story!

To make a new story, choose a character, the character’s location, and something that happens.

For example:

Character: Miffy wants to be a pirate in her play!

Where is she: Pirate Miffy is sailing the seven seas on her big ship.

What happens: Pirate Miffy is searching for buried treasure. But look out! Suddenly, a sea monster is blocking her way! But, after talking to the sea monster, they become friends, and they sail the world together.

Some costumes!

It is time to look the part! Make an outfit that matches your character. To be Little Red Riding Hood, where a red cape. To be a pirate, put on a hat and an eye-patch.

A stage!

Every great actor needs a grand stage. With your parents’ help and permission, here is how to make your own:

  1. Pick the tallest 2 chairs in your house. Space them about 5 feet apart, the tall backs facing each other.
  2. Take broom and lay it across the top of the chairs
  3. Take 2 blankets or bedsheets, and drape them over the broom, creating curtains for your stage.
  4. Optional: Using pieces of paper or a poster board, draw pictures of your play’s location. Tape them to your curtains, and suddenly you’re in a whole new world!
