Calling all Toddlers and Preschoolers!! 
 

Puppet Program at Zoink's Fun Factory Continues!

Zoink's and Puppet Playhouse Theatre offer Preschool Puppet Program on Wednesday mornings at 10:15 am.

Cost:  Show up for only $15.00 per child, which includes the Puppet Show/Program immediately followed by 40 minutes of play in Zoink's FUN-apalooza Arenas.

Program Summary:   Engaging fables and beloved stories cleverly told with fun puppets will capture your child’s imagination and balance learning through creativity!  Supporting activities will promote cognitive learning, social and fine motor skills as well as foster creative expression.  Follow it up with movement activities in Zoink’s Fun Factory and you have a full, balanced program your child will love!

 Albert Einstein:  “The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination”

 

List of Shows:

Little Miss Muffet:  Children face their fears and discuss strategies for managing them, then can make their own spiders to take home.

Very Hungry Caterpillar:  Children learn about growing and changing and will make their own chrysalis.

Little Red Riding Hood:  Imagination and learning about real vs. pretend is the focus of this Halloween week show.  Children will learn Halloween safety from their puppet friends and make their own fun masks.

Lion & The Mouse:  Children will learn the importance of helping others as this Lion “bully” learns an important lesson. 

3 Little Pigs:  These pigs get great advice from their father about building a strong house…will they listen?  What happens when they don’t?  Fun puppet-led listening games will reinforce the importance of listening.

Henny Penny:  Children meet the animals on the farm as they try to help Henny Penny discover why the sky is falling!  Sir Isaac Newton shows up to explain gravity.   Children will expand on this concept by doing experiments related to gravity with Sir Newton leading the way.

Recycle Michael:  Recycle Michael Monster works with his puppy, Fetch, to clean up the town in this funny show about taking care of our planet.  Children will get opportunity to sift through real items to decide what is recyclable and what isn’t.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf:   The silly pig who is supposed to be watching the sheep is a bit bored and decides to pull a prank on the other farm animals.  Children learn an important lesson when this pig tells so many fibs that no one believes him anymore.  This is the last class so children will make their own paper bag puppet friends to do their favorite shows at home!
