Wonderful quality, life like Puppets are used to create wonderful visual images throughout this event.
Meet Patch the Puppy with his wagging tail, refusal to say hello and his favourite trick. Patch is encouraged to say hello to the children and they are given an opportunity to stroke him if they wish.
Other stories include a modified version of “We’re going on a bear hunt – with a difference!” because we’re going sledging and have other wonderful adventures along the way. Action Adventures also include “Big Brown Bear” but who’s that hiding in the bag? Is that a Blue Elephant I can see? Let’s do the actions and what sound does he make? We can also include phonics and numbers into our sketches so that they are appropriate for schools too.
No Storytelling would be complete without the very Popular “Gruffalo” but prepare to be amazed as you meet the characters from this story. Is that really a snake? Can Owl actually fly? Who has had babies and can we play too? The children help to bring this wonderful story Alive and have an opportunity to practice with some finger puppets.
Meet Leroy, our Narrator (Large Black Puppet who sits on SANDRA’s knee). He’s 5 and just started school and hates it! He is having trouble “fitting in” and isn’t making friends easily. Leroy is great for school projects, topics or awards like the Stephen Lawrence Award as he encourages the children to be completely honest about their feelings and offers some techniques and problem solving to help children deal with real life problems such as bullying, stress, anger, diversity etc
Jam is our large blue puppet who loves being very loud, playing the drums and getting into trouble. You need to meet Jam to understand him!
We have Lettuce our tiny, very shy rabbit who lives in a cabbage patch but can the children find her friends. She loves to play “Hide and Seek”.
There are many more wonderful characters to explore so why not see how many you can find on my website. All of this is brought to life with music, lighting, sound effects and the Puppeteer uses a head microphone so that the children can hear everything clearly. This is an interactive event so the children will be asked to join in with singing, dancing, jumping around, finding things, stroking and using some of the puppets, as well as winning prizes/sweets along the way.
These puppets can be adapted to suit any situation/event and would be ideal for Gala’s, Fete’s, shows, corporate events, weddings, christenings etc
You could combine a mini puppet session with any other activity on this website too – That’s how flexible we are! We have so much choice i.e. disco, games, face painting, glitter tattoos, balloon modelling, karaoke etc. Alternatively, you could combine this with a craft activity – have a look at our Fleggybob pompoms reduced from £7.99 to £2.99 per pack, per child and a great take home gift too. This pack includes a fleggybob craft activity (the children create their own pompom character), a birth certificate and story adventure book. The book encourages creative writing whilst also supporting the children’s reading and writing skills.
Too much choice? Please don’t worry. Sandra is always happy to have an informal, no obligation chat with you to make sure the package is right for your event.
