Presentations for the 2021-2022 School Year

Give your students the opportunity to engage with the puppets! Our wonderful online live performances will be available for the entire school year. We are planning to add in-person programs starting in January 2022, depending on new variants and Vermont Department of Health and CDC protocols. 

Virtual Program Availability for 2021-2022:

Anxiety/Worry for Grades K-4

Includes a live intro with a puppet and a person, a professionally filmed skit, and a live Q&A with a puppet at the end. In the program we normalize Worry and provide tips and tools for when it is feeling too big. For more information, click here

Anxiety/Stress Workshop for Grades 5-8

This Zoom workshop will address and normalize stress and worry. Students learn how the brain and body process stress, how to know when it is becoming a problem, and tools for managing stress when it feels overwhelming. It gives a safe and open platform for discussion and problem solving. Not a puppet program. For more information, click here. 

Kindness (adapted Bullying Prevention) for Grades K-4

Includes a live intro with a puppet and a person, a professionally filmed skit, and a live Q&A with a puppet at the end. Students learn strategies to use if someone is unkind, who they can talk to, 9 kindness tips, and how to be an upstander. For more information, click here
