Fostering creativity

Colorful paper puppet bats and butterflies made of construction paper and decorated with stickers, markers, and more paper.

We recently did a paper puppet workshop with a group of refugee children in Clarkston. They were so sweet and worked so diligently to decorate their bats, butterflies and people using stickers, markers, and cutting up construction paper for clothes, accessories, etc. They produced the most creative puppets out of such simple materials that I had to share them!

Back to School!

Kindergarten students show shadow puppets that they made in a workshop.

Piccadilly Puppets has many educational shows and workshops! Bring us to your school this year! We have discounted prices for Title One schools.

Help Spread the Joy of Puppets on Ga Gives Day!

Thursday, November 12 is GA Gives Day!

“You were fantastic…Please come back and do another puppet show!”

That’s what Taylor, a second-grade student at Jackson Elementary wrote us in a letter after our performance of Cherokee Tales. The children had obviously enjoyed the performance, laughing at all of the funny parts, chanting along with Chief Gray Eagle. They might not have even realized how much the show fit into the Native American unit of their curriculum! Thanks to a grant, we were able to perform at that school for a reasonable price. We need support from individuals, too – people like you that see the value of puppets and arts in education.

Ga Gives Day is a chance to highlight the many non-profits working to make our state a better place to live. Georgia is at the bottom of the country in government support of the arts, but YOU can help bridge the gap so that kids of all backgrounds and income levels can experience our shows!
