Our theme for 2017 is: Celebrate with Puppets
Every month we will think of a way that we can use puppets to celebrate.
The bi-monthly newsletter, “Puppet Times,” will highlight a special occasion such as Lunar New Year, Black History Month, Earth Day, etc. and discuss how to use puppets to celebrate and learn about these events. Together we will explore different forms of puppetry and use our Puppet Play Dates in the Park to experiment with various puppeteering techniques. The newsletter will also direct you to a puppet craft or puppeteering activity. You can share your work and thoughts at our monthly park play date. You can even submit your own ideas for publication in the newsletter under the special section: Puppeteers Speak.
