Puppet Theater and Puppets / Play Therapy Class

Puppet Theater and Puppets / Play Therapy Class

I was very overwhelmed when thinking about creating a play therapy puppet theater, play therapy puppets, and a script. I never realized until this class that I really can be creative. I enjoyed this project and my kids did too. They made puppets with me and enjoyed using the theater.

It was difficult to come up with an idea at first, but then I find that I always try to make things too complicated. I am an elementary counselor and often have a difficult time teaching the younger students what bullying means. I thought the puppets would provide a eye catching way to, not only explain what it means, but to demonstrate what it means. We use the Olweus Bullying Prevention Program at our school, so I took the definition and concepts taught by Olweus and made them into an act using Bully Bullfrog and Friendly Fish. PAWS is our Panther mascot and also the acronym for our Positive Behavior Support rules so he is the moderator.

If I can do this, anyone can!
