Wild Cow Puppet Craft Parties Option A - Puppetry Process Program
  • Works well with 6 to 21 children
  • Maximum of 36 guests with extra help*
    *Each child 2-4, as well as children who require special supervision, need one to one help
  • As a hands-on adult/child craft activity, this party can accommodate groups larger than 36.
    Program divided into 3 parts:

    Part 1: Professional Puppet Show Performances
    I bring a theatre, props and puppets for two fairy tales.  The Guest of Honor is invited to assist me in performing two stories from my current repertoire of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Little Red Riding Hood, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Billy Goats Gruff, Hansel and Gretel, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Red Hen, and The Little Mermaid.

    Part 2: Make Your Own Hand Puppet
    After the performance, all the children are invited to make their own puppets. The generic puppet form can be trimmed and embellished simply or elaborately according to one’s imagination and capabilities. More about the puppets.

    Part 3: Children’s Puppet Shows
    The children are encouraged to buddy up to perform their own short skits using the hand puppets they have just made. I have ten theatre backdrops for them to choose from.

    At the end of the activity, the puppets can be collected and set aside while the guests enjoy refreshments. The puppets are ready to serve as party favors and handed back to the puppeteers who made them, perhaps stuffed with a baggy of treats.

    Program Length: This total program usually ends after about an hour, or an hour-and-a-quarter; I don’t take the theatre down until everyone who wants to, has had a chance to perform.
    Educational Benefits:
    The puppetry venue provides a fun, hands-on entertainment experience for children while promoting their creativity, imagination, verbal skills, gross and fine motor skills, as well as their social skills. Active involvement in different aspects of puppetry, from puppet making to performance, empowers children to try new things on their own, giving them some positive encounters to fall back on.

    Wild Cow Puppet Craft Parties Option B - Performers Showcase

    • Small group only (For groups with 12 guests or less)
    Program divided into 2 parts:
    Part 1: Children’s Puppet Shows with Pre-Made Puppets
    I bring puppets and props for 4 fairy tales. Groups of 3 children at a time can take turns performing a story for the others.

    Part 2: Make Your Own Puppet
    After the performance, all the children are invited to make their own puppets. The generic puppet form can be trimmed and embellished simply or elaborately according to one’s imagination and capabilities. More about the puppets

    Program Length: This total program usually ends after about an hour. If you choose this option, performance time will probably be about 35 minutes, with the remainder of the hour devoted to making puppets.

    Educational Benefits:
    • This program can be a good choice for Home Schoolers. It gives home-schooled students opportunities for performing and interacting with other children. It is an ideal venue for practicing social and verbal skills, and as a platform for dramatic and creative expression.
    • To give added value to a ready-laced puppet, I leave the lace tip on the yarn lace tucked inside the puppet. When the child’s eye-hand coordination skills have improved, the puppet can then be unlaced and turned inside out for the child to rework.
    • The puppetry venue provides a fun, hands-on entertainment experience for children while promoting their creativity, imagination, verbal skills, gross and fine motor skills, as well as their social skills. Active involvement in different aspects of puppetry, from puppet making to performance, empowers children to try new things on their own, giving them some positive encounters to fall back on.
