If you’re looking to introduce your childcare and early primary students to environmental sustainability principles, ‘Our Planet At Play’ by Larrikin Puppets is a puppet show that does exactly that. This fast-paced, feel-good environmental sustainability puppet show encourages audiences to talk, play, sing, and dance along.
The ‘Our Planet At Play School Edition’ puppet show is ideal for children in early primary school classes (Prep, Grades 1 and 2), libraries, and theatres. The ‘Our Planet At Play Kindy Edition’ is ideal for childcare centres and kindergartens. The show teaches children about environmental sustainability including waste management (littering), recycling, composting plus nature and marine conservation – and what we can all do to look after this planet of ours. It stars loveable puppet characters such as Troggg, Marina, Scrambles, Freerange the Chicken, Frizzby, Flossy, Frazzamatazz as well as a variety of land animals and sea creatures.
The Kindy Edition includes a story time segment and the School Edition includes an act featuring Lovelace, the world’s first professional puppet made out of electronic waste.
