TCK’s Puppet Pals Program is a 4-week interactive virtual workshop. This workshop is designed to combat feelings of loneliness and isolation, and encourage positive thinking, goal setting, positive friendship skills, communication skills and empathy.
Registrants will receive by mail a puppet-making kit (Puppet Pal Box), including all of the materials necessary for children to create their very own puppet pal.
Over four weeks, TCK will facilitate fun conversations and meaningful activities that help children work through their emotions and to imbue their puppet pal with their dreams and goals.
Introductions - the children, The Concerned Kids, the facilitator(s), TCK puppets, and the program.
