Outdoor Puppetry for ChildrenPosted by Suzanne, on November 23rd, 2009
All children thrive with plenty of outdoor play and big movement, even better if it is meaningful movement. My kids did a lot of gardening, climbing trees to pick apples and plums, carrying wood, later chopping wood….climbing trees, ropes, all those great free moving things children need. I have been interested in nature and children for many years and have created opportunities for story and puppet events outside…some spontaneous, some planned.
The photos are from a workshop I gave in England at Emerson College where teachers created outdoor theaters in the natural landscape. It was amazing to see the infinite possibilities to make magic!
