    “Toodles,” the puppet who “is six-with-attitude,” starts it off by introducing them to the art of ventriloquism, and together “we” explain what the workshop includes.
     The children will spend approximately 35 to 45 minutes designing and creating their own sock puppet. While the puppets are drying, we will go over the guidance sheets that I have for them.  This guide is theirs to keep.
    While their puppets continue to dry, I will give them each a “peepers” puppet to use  for the rest of the workshop. The “peepers” are theirs to keep.

 

 

 

 

The Sock Puppet & Ventriloquism workshop is for kids between 11 and 15 years of age.  I’ve designed it primarily for libraries, and is best presented on weekends and during school breaks.  It’s a unique, 2-hour learning experience, and lots of fun!
