Ask kids to show you in their bodies these words:
- Quiet, calm, still
- Boom, crackle, flash, twinkle, twinkle, Bang
- Pop,pop,pop, sizzle, sizzle, Bang
- Flash, Sparkle, Twinkle, Boom
- Twinkle, crackle, Sizzle, quiet, calm, still
How can you show color through dance?
Can you dance with multiple scarves? Does each color represent a different step or movement?
Can you show the difference in your body between the two opposites of fireworks loud and quiet stillness? Can you be really still and then explode into movement?
We learn through experiences. So by children processing fireworks through their bodies and creating their own fireworks show through dance, can help them process the fireworks when they see, hear and smell it on the 4th of July.
Have fun creating firework dances with the children in your life. What you create might be far more beautiful then what appears in the night sky!
