A Special and Fun Puppet Show!

A few weeks ago Ms. G, a friend of our family, came to share her time and talents with the children in our homeschool group.  Ms. G. was a teacher for 34 years and now that she is retired she's still a very busy lady!  She used to do puppet shows for her children in her classroom and she offered to come to my home to share finger plays, puppets, and songs with our children.  Ms. G. loves teaching and our great country as she uses patriotic costumes and songs throughout her performance.  Here are some pictures of our time with Ms. G.  The kids loved every second of the show!

Ms. G. stands next to her beautiful puppet theater that one of her student's parents made for her out of PVC pipes!

The kids loved this song as our thumbs went "up the hill and down the hill, up the hill and down the hill!"

A prince and princess in their costumes as Ms. G. sang the story of how the prince rescued the princess from a deep sleep.

Yee! Haw!

The kids loved this puppet performance and laughed so much when the boy puppet told the lion "I don't care!" when the lion said he was going to eat the boy! 

My son and his friends got to go "behind the scenes" and perform a skit with the puppets!  They thought this was cool!

THANK YOU Ms. G. for a wonderful and fun afternoon!  Your love for children and teaching was so evident as you spent time to be with us to share your talents and gifts with us!
