Introduction

Children of all ages love puppets-whether kids are watching a puppet show or actually being the puppeteers. Puppets have a way of imparting biblical truths in a fun, humorous, and unforgettable way.

Just Add Puppets gives your twenty new skits that not only use puppets but also involve children in the audience. Most of the preparation is already done, since all the spoken dialogue, sound effects, and music are prerecorded and included on the CDs. The book includes suggested actions, costumes, props, and scenery, as well as a Scripture index and a topical index. It's never been so easy to put on a puppet show!

Audiences can enjoy Just Add Puppets in a variety of settings:

*a Sunday school class,

*a children's church gathering,

*a worship service,

*a family evening program,

*a community outreach event, or

*a special children's event.

Just Add Puppets can also be used in conjunction with Group Publishing's FaithWeaver( Bible Curriculum and KidsOwn Worship( for Summer 2001 through Summer 2002, which you can order from Group Publishing or your local Christian bookstore. Using Just Add Puppets along with this family ministry curriculum helps you reinforce Bible stories, verses, and themes in a way that cements Bible truths in kids' lives.

Children's Church Connection

The puppet skits in Just Add Puppets connect well with any Sunday school program. However, special care has been taken to ensure that each skit connects with a lesson from Group Publishing's KidsOwn Worship(. There are four skits for each quarter from Summer 2001 to Summer 2002 that will help drive home the point you teach in KidsOwn Worship( lessons.

Simple Steps to Perform a Skit

1. Gather kids who are interested in organizing a puppet skit.

2. Decide when and where to perform the skit.

3. Skim the topical index (p. 141) or the Scripture index (p. 141), and decide which skit will fit the purpose of your gathering.

4. Listen to the CD, then assign roles. You'll need kids to manipulate the puppets as well as make scene and prop changes.

5. Have kids help you collect and create costumes, props, and scenes. Many items can be collected from your church or from kids' homes.

6. Practice the skit with the kids, and synchronize the puppet movements with the CD. Some skits require stopping the CD while a leader asks the audience questions. Be familiar with the stops and starts of the CD.

7. Then on with the show! It's that simple.
