The excitement that came with the swift arrival of the CBD oils I’d ordered reminded me of my childhood, particularly some TV and movie scenes that made me want to re-enact them. This is a great way to bring some fun into parenting, I think. Here are some other fun ways to re-enact scenes from some favourite childhood movies.
Picture a scene from The Wizard of Oz where the train is trying to fly over the Rainbow Forest. See how many times you can pull out the word “slapstick.” You can also refer to that famous slapstick scene from Jaws. Imagine seeing a shark in your backyard.
The great slapstick scene from Jaws! If you’re a parent or even a kid who doesn’t know how to handle this scene at home, give it a go. Try to repeat it like the person in the movie while being really silly. The crazier you are with your delivery the funnier it’ll be.
This scene in Sesame Street is a good one to re-enact because it involves all of the crazy moms trying to keep their kids inside.
We recommend getting a jar of homemade lemonade for this scene. Make sure to see how long you can hold a juice bottle before it breaks. The goal is to make it so the cup slides off the table and onto the floor. Have a blast.
Try re-enacting a scene from Forrest Gump where a dirt bike is flying off a bridge. Take all the kids from your party to a park. Give them pieces of paper. They’ll pretend to be reporters with their video camera and audio recorder as they ask people for dirt. Then they’ll try to catch every bit of dirt that falls out of people’s mouths.
Grab some clay or a big bucket of paint and paint your face. Then make a big pink flower on your head. Take a piece of paper and cover it with paint. The goal is to form a flower on the paper. After it dries and the paint is slightly dry, cut it out. Then, while you’re sticking the flower on the flower, try to stick the flower on your own face. Have fun.
Picture Book Characters
Use a picture book and help the kids re-enact some famous characters in their favourite book.
Kids are so lucky to have such creative and funny parents who love to play. Use a flower pot and try to recreate a scene from The Little Princess where the flower fairies fall off the shelf and they go tumbling down the stairs. Take all the kids from your party to a park. Grab some clay or a big bucket of paint and paint your face. Then make a big pink flower on your head. Take a piece of paper and cover it with paint. The goal is to make it so the flower slips off of your face and lands on the floor. Have a blast.
A Game of Hide and Seek
Try using the book, The Monster at the End of This Book, by Dr. Seuss. Give it a try, too. You have to find your mommy before she finds you. You’ll have to get the mommy so she’ll know where to hide you, too. Then you’ll get to hide behind a baby doll’s crib or a large pile of clothes. See if you can stick it on your own face.
Start with the mommy hiding you and then try to get the mommy to peek out from the clothes pile. If you can do that, you’ve won.
