Join us this this summer at MoMI where Wonderspark Puppets presents Puppetry for Parents and Professionals!


Puppetry can be used as an amazing tool for interaction, pretend play, communication, motivation, de-escalation, and more. 


Led by professional puppeteer and Jim Henson Foundation Manager Lindsey “Z.” Briggs, participants will learn the basics of performance and technique as well as discuss ways to utilize puppets within the home, school, or other settings to build emotional connections. Puppets can be especially effective with children of various abilities, including those on the autism spectrum and children with developmental delays. Each participant will receive their own puppet kit to take home which includes a unique customized puppet and a finger puppet. The workshop is intended for parents and any professionals working with young people.
