Over the many years growing and developing Juniper Tree Puppets as my livelihood, I have created many 'profit centers' under its umbrella.  I have been dedicated to offering joyful programs that also bring the social, artistic, child developmental, and therapeutic pieces together.

One of the most popular, meaningful, appreciated, and profitable classes I have offered has been a sweet and simple Parent/Tot series for an adult with a baby in arms up to 3 yrs, called 'Puppet Tales for Tots'.  It has been offered in different time frames, but basically it is a circle of parents and littles with you as their puppetry guide enjoying puppet tales together.

All in all the puppet tales class is an hour - hour and a half a week of purposeful fun for child and parent! Of course you can offer multiple sessions too.

You can do this too!  Part time or more full time, supplement your income or be your full income.

Join us for a step by step Online Course on how to create a 'Puppet Tales for Tots'  Business of your own.
