Bellmore Herald – Puppetry Workshop

Our local newspaper The Bellmore Herald was kind enough to feature me in the March 29th, 2018 issue for World Puppetry Day when I came to the elementary school and ran a puppet workshop with my wife for the kindergarten kids. 

We created a Pete the Cat paper bag puppet craft as you can see one of the boys holding his completed project at the bottom of the image. Materials were: Paper bags, construction paper, google eyes, buttons, and artistic expression with the crayons/markers giving the final touches.

About 50 kids in all participated from both classes taking over the all-purpose room and it's going to be a yearly event we run at the school.

A special thanks to Ms. Speidel for allowing us to make a fun afternoon for the kids and to our amazing kindergarten teachers Ms. Cimorelli and Ms. Reime for welcoming us into their classrooms.
