SCRIPT
(Set out enough chairs for each child to make a 'car' with one in front for the driver. The children mill around, some wearing hats, some carrying bags, some wearing sun glasses.)
Driver:  Hello everyone, are you ready to go to town?
Children:  Yes thank you.
(All climb into their seats and pretend to fasten their safety belts.)
Driver:  Are you ready? Let's go!
Child:  Wait, wait, I forgot my bag!
(Jumps out of the 'car' and hurries off, returning with a bag and
climbing back in.)
Driver:  Are you ready now? Let's go!
Children:  We're ready. Let's go!.
Child: Wait, wait, I forgot my jacket!
(Jumps out of the 'car' and hurries off, returning with a jacket and climbing back in.
While waiting the driver starts getting impatient, tapping his foot.)
Driver:  OK. Are you ready now?
Children:  Yes yes, we're ready. Let's go!
Child:  Wait, wait, I forgot my sunglasses!
(Jumps out of the 'car' and hurries off, returning with
