Kids Project Puppet Show
The Kids Project Puppet Show features child-size hand and rod puppets and is best for grades 2-6. Each show features 2-4 puppet characters in theatrical scenes, focusing on disability awareness, anti-bullying issues, and character development. The two teaching artists presenting the shows encourage audience participation through facilitated dialogue, allowing the students in the audience to learn from interacting directly with the puppet characters. The Puppet Show can be presented in any large space for groups from 40-100.
Program length: 45 - 55 minutes
Kids Project Making Friends
This program is suitable for pre-K through first grade. It’s a fun, interactive introduction to disabilities presented by one educator using dolls or small soft-sculptured hand puppets, adaptive equipment, storytelling, and sign language. Making Friends is presented in classrooms, for groups of up to 30 children at one time. The children interact directly with the doll or puppet “characters,” learning the processes required in making friends. The program can be tailored to meet individual classes’ needs.
Program length: 30 - 40 minutes
