Create a mystery play -- a theatre activity that will have people trying to guess whodunit before the play is over. Kids will love putting their own spin on a classic mystery in this kids' activity.
What You'll Need:
- One classic mystery story
How to Write a Mystery Play:
Step 1: Help your kids rewrite a short classic mystery story as a play with modern characters and situations.
Step 2: Hunt for costumes in thrift stores and at garage sales. This will keep the family busy for at least a month!
Step 3: Practice first, then try out the play on a small audience to get helpful feedback. Refine the performance and take it to a larger audience.
Next, turn a fairy tale everyone loves into a classic play for kids.
