Something fascinating happens when you give children the opportunity to design and make their own characters with their very own personality and values. Last night our marionette puppet show was a great chance for creative kids to show off their work. There were mermaids, aliens, robots and creatures that you just cannot classify! They were all brilliant but what was surprisingly entertaining to the audience were the characteristics given to their puppets. Here's a couple:
" This is JJ, when he needs to draw he sits on paper with his pencil body and wiggles his bottom around"
"This is Marie - she likes working hard and saved $200. She also loves baking muffins"
