Puppet Show

I took the kids down to the Center for Puppetry Arts and we saw the puppet show "Weather Rocks!" First, we attended a workshop where the kids made puppets and were able to put on a very short show (about 1 minute) with their puppets. All of the kids really got into it and it was fun to watch them.

That's the back of Claxton's head you see with his puppet.

Then we spent some time in the museum checking out all the puppets and especially enjoyed all of the Sesame Street characters.

Next, it was on to the show where we were entertained by songs, dancing and fun facts about weather. The creativity was truly amazing. Claxton absolutely loved it and can't wait to attend another event there. The show was a little long for Julia as it lasted about an hour, but we managed!

And all the way home the two of them sang to the top of their lungs the theme song - "We are the weather people, welcome to our show!" Over and over and over again.
