In the preschool at EduKids East Tamaki, one child's interest in puppets in the book area led to a common interest of many of our tamariki who actively participated in retelling their favourite stories through the use of hand held puppets, created their own stories and and made own puppets with art materials. 

To extend this interest, teachers introduced shadow puppetry that took another dimension to their puppetry skills. They also learnt that we need light to create shadows whether it is that out of a table lamp or that of sun in the playground. We also invited a professional puppeteer to the classroom, who presented a fabulous show which gave our tamariki loads of fun and entertainment.
