Here's an idea for a stage set to be used in a "Character Counts" show. The scene was to show a place where kids come to play and sometimes, not play so well together. This was a perfect format to sing about trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship!
The trees were made from school butcher paper and the trunks of the trees were stapled to the back wall. The green leaves of the tree were hung from the ceiling to give the illusion of a very large old tree.
The slide was put together using a ladder and a real sliding board. Although the kids did not slide down the board, they were able to sit at the bottom of the slide and stand at the top. This really looked great on the stage and allowed for the parents to have a "photo op" of their little star for the scrapbook!
When this picture was taken, our second borrowed bench had not yet been delivered, but we promise, those two classroom chairs were removed for the performance.
This set was designed by many awesomely creative people, but the loudest shout outs must go to:
Lori S. (The Magic Paper Lady), and (Draw It On the Spot) Victoria! Love you two!
