Applause Unlimited

Today we braved the outdoors for a .... PUPPET SHOW!

We all had so much fun! We are so lucky to have the Dogwood Dell Festival of the Arts. This is its 55th straight year. They have a kids stage with lots of fun a activities throughout the summer.

Today we ventured out to see Applause Unlimited. He was absolutly wonderful. Today's story was Tales Of A Mysterious Land. From their website:
Three stories demonstrate the rich ethnic diversity of Chinese folklore. Narrated and performed with hand puppets, rod puppets, masks and simple props, the story of "Long Hair Girl", "The God of Faces", and "The Story of the House" are sure to stir the heart and stimulate the imagination of young and old.

All three children were awe struck for the entire show. It was well worth braving the heat. Now, we are about to make out own puppets, out of brown bags, construction paper, crayons and paint. Pictures to come...but for now, take a look at today's show!
