Mythology for Kids: Activity Ideas

Hi Everyone! This week we are exploring Mythology with kids. Today we have some fun ideas for Myth-related Activities:

-Make a comic book version of a myth you have read: retell a story from the perspective of one of the other characters (i.e. “What did the Minotaur think?” “Was Medusa having a bad day?” “Was Anansi misunderstood?”)

-Video-tape an “interview” where characters from the myths are interviewed for a talk show: have the host ask questions about their motivations and future plans…

-Paint portraits or make masks depicting the characters in the myths, act out scenes,

-Make a stop-motion animation of a myth (see our tutorial on how to make a stop-motion using iMovie here: https://saturdayclubberlin.com/2020/05/16/how-to-make-a-stop-motion-animation-using-imovie/),

-Craft and play a matching game where you draw cards and kids need to match up the god with his or her power.
