Puppets, More Puppets and some Costume prep
The 2011 22nd Annual Timpanogos Storytelling Festival is over.
If you missed it, watch for next year's event on Labor day Weekend.
Or, if you can't wait, there is the Midwinter TSI (Timpanogos Storytelling Institute) in February.
Lex loves helping mom work (scratch that...PLAY) in the Fanfare tent each year!
It's looking official - The OPL's Puppet Festival looks to be an annual thing from now on. Hundreds of kids came, enjoyed free puppet shows from 10-2, created their own marionettes and puppets in the free make and takes, and manipulated a giant marionette to boot. Yeah for some fabulously talented puppet volunteers in our community!
It might be a tad early for Halloween... I take that back, it is not too early if you are a kid. Kids have been planning cotume choices since last November. So it's only early if you've lost some of that kid magic. In any case, I stumbled on some amazing fabrics a few weeks ago, mostly for use in library displays, but one piece in particular is multipurpose... - I had to look up some how-to videos :)
Oh, and soon to come . . . Wannabe Puppet Workshops at the OPL
