Just a note that there are a couple of new Axtrax available. YOu can read the scripts here
One is called Stranger Danger and the other is Chimp has Fleas. Stranger Danger is great for preschools or elementary school assemblies that have anything to do with friends and strangers. Yes, even as part of the bullying program.
The Chimp has Fleas is a great introduction to a Flea Circus OR to magic tricks that are done by the flea. Here are some magic trick ideas that could be attributed to fleas. (or ghosts for that matter)
Rope in the Bottle
Silks off Coat Hanger
Tie a slip knot and give the flea credit for "untying" the knot
When I do a flea routine it is usually the favorite part of the program. With some tongue clicking you can have the flea tap dance while and hum a song. (you hum in the back of your throat) "Tea for Two" is good.
The Books are a Treasure skit is GREAT for next summer's USA library theme as well. It is about a puppet who can't stop reading the book, Treasure Island. Great stuff, especially if you are incorporating a pirate.
Tony Borders and Steve Petra are writing some new AxTrax for us. Tony's first one is Stranger Danger! You can read it and listen to the whole routine at the link Tony gave above.
(So many new things!....it's like CHRISTMAS!)
