Christmas family & friends activity - Make your own Christmas puppet show

Ref: C3532941

This session is part of our Christmas events. Once you are enrolled, all children can enjoy this activity with you. If other adults wish to join, please ask them to enrol on the session. In this 90 minute session we will make some simple puppets using toilet rolls or card and paper, and perform a puppet show! We will tell the story of St Nicholas, who lived in the 4th century and gave secret gifts to people, becoming the original Father Christmas. Afterwards you might want to create your own puppet shows over the Christmas holidays with family or friends!

Course aim

After attending this course you will be able to make your own simple puppets and be able to perform a puppet show. You will also learn about the story of St Nicholas and Father Christmas.

  • This course is for beginners and improvers

By the end of the course I should be able to:

  • make my own puppets
