Product Description

Just add puppets and your skits are instantly ready! Music, sound effects and audio of the scripts are on the 2 CDs included in the purchase. The book has recommended motions for the puppeteers, which is particularly helpful to novices. For those ready to handle more complexity, directions for creating a stage, props and Bible puppet costumes are also easy to follow. There is a wide range of skits that could be used for almost any occasion including Christmas, Easter, VBS and any teachable opportunity for your young people.

Lead kids to discover more about Jesus from the people who knew him best--those he met...like one of the shepherds, Zacchaeus, a Roman soldier, and more!

Here's what you'll want to know:
  • 2 compact discs with audio for each script.
  • Scripture reference in Table of Contents
  • Directions for creating a stage
  • Simple puppet Bible costumes
  • Reproducible patterns for props
  • Reproducible scripts with staging instructions
  • A Puppet Primer with tips for powerful and imaginative productions
  • Scripts have no more than four puppets on stage at any one time
  • Fun audience involvement. In "Fish and Loaves", the audience acts the part of the crowd, each of them stuffed with food.
  • Group discussion points in the "For Deeper Learning" section.

Publisher's Description

Use 20 Stories From People Who Met Jesus to enliven favorite Bible stories and to introduce children to puppeteering! Lead kids to discover more about Jesus from the people who knew him best--those he met...like one of the shepherds, Zacchaeus, a Roman soldier, and more!

You will get:
  • 2 compact discs with audio for each script. You and your puppeteer friends don't have to worry about digging up sound effects or reading the lines as you perform. It's already done for you!
  • Scripture reference in Table of Contents,
  • Directions for creating a stage,
  • Simple Bible costumes for puppets,
  • Reproducible patterns for props,
  • Reproducible scripts with staging instructions,
  • And a Puppet Primer with tips for powerful and imaginative productions.

The twenty scripts you'll find in Instant Puppet Skits have something in common: each features a Bible character who met Jesus and shares a personal insight. John the Baptist tells his would-be, disgusted director that he is not the star attraction, that his purpose was to prepare people to follow Jesus, and while Lazarus tries to collect a refund on his burial, he explains eternal life for those who believe. And you'll find that the scripts have other things in common too:
  • Scripts have no more than four puppets on stage at any one time, and you can re-use the same four "actors" with different costumes to limit the costs of the puppets!
  • Four or less puppets per script makes it easy for you to recruit enough puppeteers!
  • Yet the audience is involved. In "Fish and Loaves", the audience acts the part of the crowd, each of them stuffed with food.
  • After each script you'll find group discussion points in the "For Deeper Learning" section.

Q: Are these skits appropriate for only 2 puppets? We have 1 student and 2 teachers. I'd like to be sure that we can manage with this small staff. Please pray that we will have more volunteer.

A:

The skits utilize no more than 4 puppets, so you should be able to do them with as few as 2 people.

Q: CD are included? I'd like to purchase Instant Puppet Skits: 20 Stories From People Who Met Jesus, CBD Stock #WW424588, but I'm not sure whether CD are included or not.

A:

Yes, 2 CDs are included with this book.
