I am a tree
Kids have fun recreating the shapes and movement of trees through dance and movement. Puppets and props will be used to demonstrate all the things trees need to live and flourish— water, sun, dirt, worms, butterflies, etc. After the puppets, children decorate leaves cut out of felt that I will attach to hat-bands to create tree hats.

Recycle, reuse and re-think
Through puppetry, kids examine examples of all the wonderful things trees give us (Stuff made out of wood, cardboard, paper, fruit, seeds, etc.) We play a game that demonstrates how we don't have to throw this stuff away when we are finished with it, but rather, can recycle it to make something new. Kids use paper clay and their recycled materials to create one of a kind mixed media sculptures.

The Colors of Nature
Kids enjoy a 15 minute puppet performance—A musical rendition of the classic, Jewish folktale, "It Could Always be Worse" in which we highlight the colors of the rainbow and the reflective colors found in nature. Kids transition to the art table where they use scratchboard to create rainbow-colored images.
