2018 Steve had a few extra pounds of loving on his human container. Regardless of the personal critique on my physique this was an amazing day where we celebrated World Puppetry Day which is March 21st but the school schedules allowed us to get the event rocking and rolling on the 23rd.
School principal Ms. Speidel was amazing for allowing me to run this with the neighborhood kids. My wife and Ms. Reime (Kindergarten teacher) were both awesome and helped pull this event off without a hitch.
We all built a Pete The Cat paper bag puppet. Everyone had their own take on it (even with identically supplied parts) which made it such a great exploration of creativity for all of the kids involved.
