I wish I had video of all the smiles I saw today and at the Arts and Crafts Show in Sioux Falls. Seeing the children (and adults) having fun chatting with Jemimah and Lily was delightful. And then when the kids would put a puppet on their hand to try their hand at puppetry by making their puppet talk to Lily and Jemimah was priceless. This is just one of the things I LOVE about what I do. I am blessed beyond what I deserve! Of course having Santa and Mrs Claus with us today was an extra blessing!
Today Grandma Dori, Lily and I will be doing a show at Fieldcrest Nursing home. Having fun working on this new type of show! Then Friday and Saturday I will be at the Sioux Falls Arts and Crafts Expo. Hoping for a great weekend!
I also want to point out the activity guide for the DVD "Lily and the Legend of Santa Claus" is now available here on the website for those of you who purchase the DVD and wish to have more copies of the guide. Also for churches or libraries who have the DVD available to check out, the guide can be printed off at home by whoever checks out the DVD. Hope this makes things easier. Remember to also print off the finger puppet of Saint Nicholas!
Have a great weekend!!

Puppetry is an art form. A wonderful art form! An art form used all over the world in most every country on the planet. I love advocating for the Art of Puppetry and was just made aware of another article which explains some of the valuable reasons for including Art Education in the curriculum. Have a read!!
