Take an old fable, recycle it, and it becomes something new!
This imaginative musical play first dramatizes children’s retellings of Aesop’s traditional fables, then shows student-written modern versions of these tales. In addition to reusing old fables, the entire set for the play, all the props and the musical instruments have been created entirely from recycled materials. Tin cans become the leaves for a tree, a bunch of newspaper bags form a lion’s mane, and an aluminum garbage can is used as a drum. Students can see that with little more than “junk” and a good imagination, something incredible can be created.
The Colorado kid fable writers were from all different backgrounds including African-American and Latino (one girl wrote her fable in Spanish), as well as a boy who was blind and a girl who was homeless.
This entertaining and meaningful play promotes recycling in a fun way and teaches simple but valuable lessons for life.
