A LIVE INTERACTIVE PUPPET SHOW! Movin' & Groovin' Health Series: Mr. Kolache's Long List

from Center for Puppetry Arts

Program image

Join Mr. Kolache (hand puppet), a Czech pastry, and his dog Baklava (hand puppet) on a “movin and groovin’” adventure both inside and outside the grocery store in which they live. When Mr. Kolache is faced with an overwhelming list of tasks and lack of energy, students (K-2) come to his assistance by helping him make choices about eating healthy snacks and staying active. Students leave the program understanding that making healthy choices gives us the energy and motivation to accomplish anything! Audiences will interact with a live puppeteer as well as with colorful animated segments and videos, and help Mr. Kolache turn a “To-Do” List into a “Ta-Da” List!

Center for Puppetry Arts

Atlanta, GA
United States

The Center for Puppetry Arts opened to the public on September 23, 1978, when Kermit the Frog and his creator Jim Henson cut the ceremonial ribbon. The first puppetry center in the United States, today it is the largest American organization solely dedicated to the art of puppet theater.

The Center has been a leading voice in the field, and has hosted numerous conferences and festivals. In addition, the Center has been recognized both nationally and internationally as an organization for excellence. The Ford Foundation recently selected the Center as one of only 28 national organizations to be recognized for success in management and innovative programs. The prestigious Kresge Foundation awarded the Center three different grants to support its capital campaigns. The Center was also the only theater group chosen by the 1996 Olympics to participate in all four years of its arts festival program.

Program Details

Format

1. This program begins by checking in the school.

2. Students "meet" puppeteer and show begins.

3. "Wake up Mr. Kolache!"- Mr. Kolache did not eat a healthy dinner and is feeling sluggish! Students help Mr. K make healthy food decisions for a good breakfast.

4. Shopping for groceries- Mr. K's grocery list isn't the most healthy, so students assist Mr. K as he shops and selects foods from each food group on MYPlate (puppeteer introduces MyPlate).

5. Eat Lunch- Mr. K needs a little help from students when he decides to make a sandwich for lunch-- a REALLY BIG sandwich (portion control).

6. Take a Walk- Students accompany Mr. K and his dog (hand puppet), Baklava, on a walk outside. Students walk in place as they observe nature through colorful, animated pictures (try to catch a balloon, move like a snail, etc.). This walk helps to clear Mr. K's head for his next "to do" list item.

7. Write a Story- Students brainstorm with puppeteer to assist Mr. Kolache in writing a story. Students recall their "walk" and suggest characters and events for Mr. K's story.

8. Q & A with puppeteer.
