Sample Drama Game 9

MAKE AND CREATE

SAMPLE GAME: CRAZY COSTUME CREATIONS Free Sample Drama Games

Whilst drama activities like making and creating costumes, puppets, sound effects, disguises and photo slide shows aren’t exactly drama games, they can still be used in them once created.

Crazy Costume Creations involves just that, costume creation and all with basic household materials. The end fashion show provides much laughter, but it does show students that running out and buying elaborate costumes isn’t always the best answer. The solution for what to wear may easily be found at home with just a touch of ingenuity.

The other creative activities in this section of Top 50 Drama Games Unpacked are Puppet Play, focusing on simple sock puppets, Bottles Of What, making sound effect instruments, Photo Fun, a story told with planned photos and Disguise Me which transforms the students into old aged people.

CRAZY COSTUME CREATIONS

BASIC DESCRIPTION

This section is more activity based with students physically making something for their drama acts rather than just games. This first one is about making creative costumes out of cheap unusual materials. There are several different piles of materials. Each pile has a sign for the type of outfit the materials are to be used to create. The groups discuss which they want and vote for them. Once every group has been assigned an outfit, the team then work out who will be the model and then design a costume. The costume is put together on the model, using rope, glue, masking tape, staples etc. At the end of a set time (around 20minutes seems to work best), the models now line up to walk the imagined catwalk .One from the group plays the role of commentator for their model, pointing out features etc.

HELPFUL HINTS

Take photos of the models with their construction and design team before you disassemble outfits! Move around the groups as they work, often they have good ideas but have trouble working out how to translate it, or construct some elements of it. Offer advice on how to, but try not to tell them what to do.

LIST OF IDEAS

The cards have the name of the outfit and the items that could be used. You may choose just to use the materials and let the students decide on the type of outfit they make.
