Puppets🎭 - Part I - Make a Puppet Theater Using a tissue box


I recently spent a day at the Young at Art Museum in Plantation Fl., producing and filming a field trip about puppetry for PBS. We had a blast! Puppets are so much fun for kids (of all ages😀) and a great way to celebrate in May since it’s National Share a Story Month.

Puppets are Nothing to Sneeze At!...uh, except maybe if you need an empty tissue box to make a Tissue Box Puppet Theater. ;)

“When children pretend, they're using their imaginations to move beyond the bounds of reality. A stick can be a magic wand. A sock can be a puppet. A small child can be a superhero.” - Fred Rogers.

Puppets are a fantastic way for kids to express themselves, practice reading and storytelling skills, get creative, and best of all….use their imaginations. Last year, a librarian asked if I had any audio stories because she liked to have the kids act out the stories to the audiobook AND/OR have teen volunteers act them out for the younger kids.

I LOVED THAT IDEA! It inspired the puppet kits, audiobooks, and reader’s theater scripts that are a part of many of the adventures in Page Turner’s Adventure Library. You can check it out HERE and fill out an inquiry form for more info HERE

BTW I’ve been getting questions asking exactly what the deal is with our Seven-Way stories There are a lot of details at our website but here’s the main idea  …

Seven-Way Stories give you 7 ways to bring the same story to life for a child through hearing, sight, taste, touch, and smell.

Our Library, so far, has 100+ original, curated, age appropriate & safe, fun activities with more on the way (15 stories with 7 components each…ok, I’ll do the math:)…that’s 105) that can be used in whatever way’s best reaches your kids’.
