Paper Puppets

By cutting rolling and sticking brightly coloured paper, everybody can experience the joy of making their very own talking puppet,

The activity can easily be themed.  Pirate Puppets seem to be very popular.

(paper puppets are based on an original design by Jim Morris)



Shadow Stories

Simple techniques allow everyone to make shadow puppets and use then to tell exciting stories of their own devising

An excellent activity where developing speaking and listening are a priority 

This activity can fit with various topics - light and dark, for example.  I recently did a really good shadow project telling the story of The Great Fire of London.


'I aim to inspire young minds and show everbody how to make, and make use of, puppets'

'I avoid doing that which teachers can do themselves, and concentrate on bringing an extra touch of specialist expertise'

the equipment and materials right down to scissors and pencils
