In addition to the short skits, songs and games themed around kindness, anti bullying, friendship and acceptance of different types of people, there is a story time segment in which our wonderful storyteller Elissa is joined by puppet character Frazzamatazz for the reading of a book by one of three Australian children’s authors that we’re working with – Hazel Edwards OAM, Susanne Gervay OAM, Glenn Martin and Caroline Stills.
At Larrikin Puppets we believe all children deserve to be treated with kindness and respect. We believe that all children deserve to have friends. Nobody should feel alone or left out.
In our puppet show we explore different feelings and emotions, how we express them, how we can help each other deal with them, and how we ourselves can best deal with them. We talk about showing empathy towards our friends rather than making fun of them or bullying them.
We also talk about self love – being happy with who we are. Happy with our own looks, talents, personalities and quirks. It’s important to note that self esteem is not to be confused with arrogance or narcissism.
