Ideal for children aged 3 1/2 and up.
PUPPETS COOL! Party Workshops keep kids quiet, engaged and happy. If your event needs the perfect calming influence, you need PUPPETS COOL!
Here’s what to expect in a 90 minute PUPPETS COOL! Party Workshop:
We begin by asking “What is a Puppet?” and “How does it differ from a toy or a doll?” The class explores different types of hand puppets, comparing the mechanics of a Kermit the Frog-type rod-puppet to a Cookie Monster live-hand puppet. Then we’ll discuss Big Bird, a walk-around, full-body puppet and solve the mystery of “How does the man inside Big Bird see where he’s going?”
Using toy Googly Eyes (which the kids get to keep), the kids learn how to synchronize their voices with their hand movements – so that the puppets will actually appear to speak.
Then the kids create their own characters, with eyes, hair, arms, hands, etc. PUPPETS COOL! supplies all of the materials needed. There is no preparation or clean-up required from parents or helpers. These are no-sew/no-glue creations. They’re absolutely clean!
Once the puppets are built, there’s time for a short play (based on the award winning book, “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs”) and a rousing wrap up sing-along.
Please note: PUPPETS COOL! is an indoor activity. We are not available for outdoor parties.
