Due to the popularity of our original adaptations of Aesop's Fables stories for the puppet stage, The Creativity Institute writers have developed new original "Gwynn's Fables" puppet show scripts in a similar style, with animal puppets communicating clear, simple lessons to children.
The puppet show scripts in this package are all child-friendly stories. There is no violence and no one gets eaten.
It should be noted that there are many, often contradictory, theories of how to prepare children to handle bullying. The biggest variable is the individuals involved. While none of these textbook techniques will work on some of the most hard-core bullies, the objective is to reduce the incidence of bullying by raising the awareness that it is unacceptable behavior. These are just three examples of those techniques.
The three anti-bullying puppet shows in this package are:
"Friends Are as Friends Do" (Anti-Bullying) demonstrates the positive behavior support message of how being nice gets more friends than being a bully. Four parts. 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
"It's Not Tattling" explains how reporting bullying to an adult is not tattling, because the goal is to keep everyone safe. Four parts. 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
"Strength in Numbers" demonstrates the value of friends sticking together in groups to discourage harassment from bullies. Four parts. 2 1/2 to 3 minutes.
Also included with these puppet show scripts is a set of puppet show stage directions that The Creativity Institute put together to help parents and children stage more professional and enjoyable puppet shows, such as tips on moving mouths (almost everybody does it backwards), simulating walking, etc.
NOTE: THESE SCRIPTS CAN BE DOWNLOADED AT CHECKOUT.
You can download each script individually or as one Zip file.
There are any number of puppet shows for kids that can be performed with these different hand puppet characters, based on your own ideas, your favorite stories, real experiences, lessons to share, even movies and TV shows.
