Sock Puppet Party and “Parents Day Out”

Sock Puppet Party and Parent’s Day Out: December 23rd

Sock Puppet Party and Parent’s Day Out: December 23rd

Parents!  How about we wear your kids out with fun while you do that last minute shopping?  CLICK HERE:

Still looking for time to do that last minute shopping? Then drop your kids off from 10am to 2pm on Saturday, December 23rd for a super-fun Sock Puppet Party! Your kids (7 year old+) will join professional puppeteer Spencer Lott as he inspires participants in the creation of their own unique puppet, teaches the basics of puppetry, and offers tips on how to bring a new character to life. Lunch will be provided followed by cookie decorating and watching a Christmas movie. Nursery care can be provided upon request.

Yes! Each puppeteer will get to take their new character home with them! All ages (7 year old+) are welcome to make a sock puppet – and parents are encouraged to take advantage of this events’ timing to leave the kids and get any of that last-minute Christmas shopping and errand-running done.

The event is FREE, but pre-registration is required so we can plan for materials, food, and supervision. Register by Thursday, December 21st at  Childcare for younger than 7 year olds is available on request by calling: 480.837.7627. The puppet shindiggery will be at The Fountains, 15300 N. Fountains Hills Blvd.

WARNING: Only the wackiest and silliest puppet people need apply!
