THINGS I LOVE TO DO!
Mime, storyteller, and musician, Scot Cannon shares his creative talents and shows you how he comes up with all his fun ideas and how you can, too! Here we are featuring two of his four-part video series of “Things I Love to Do!”
Mime! Learn some basic pantomime moves like pushing on things you can’t push; lifting things you can’t lift; pulling things you can’t pull; and leaning on things that aren’t there!
How to Tell a Story with Stuff A great game that you can play alone or with others. Get a bunch of stuff, put it on a table; you’ll need a clock, and recording device. Follow along with Scot as he shows you how to create a story on the spot— inspired by your stuff!
