Puppets are a great way to enjoy family fun! Puppetry is a magical means to get the whole family involved- kids, teens, adults and grandparents can explore their limitless imagination in a playful and tangible way. We encourage everyone from age four and up to join us in our Do It Yourself (DIY) Puppet Projects and Puppet Pop Up (PPU) workshops. The projects are all scaled so that everyone can make something. Older participants will be able to take projects further with more details, design and performance ability.
There are many positives to playing with puppets. Puppets are a creative and comfortable medium to explore the learning and development of the following:
- Critical thinking
- Problem solving
- Managing information
- Creativity and innovation
- Cultural and global citizenship
- Personal growth and well-being
BEHIND PUPPET PROGRAMS & WORKSHOPS
WP Puppet Theatre subscribes to the Reggio Emilia education philosophy, which values children as strong, capable and resilient; rich with wonder and knowledge. Every child brings with them deep curiosity and potential, and this innate curiosity drives their interest to understand their world and their place within it. This philosophy is embedded into our DIY Puppet Projects and PPU Workshops.
