"Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" at the Center for Puppetry Arts

One of my absolute favorite holiday traditions as a child was to watch the "claymation" television showing of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!"  Now, as a mother, this is a tradition that I have passed along to my little ones.  Another new tradition we started last year was visiting the Center for Puppetry Arts to see the live puppet version of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer."

This year, we were joined by my sister-in-love, niece, and nephew.  Prior to and at the end of the show, the puppeteers joined the audience to talk about the show, how they make the puppets, and who does what behind the scenes.  The puppet show itself is just one part of the fun.  After the show, we head upstairs to the workshop rooms to create a puppet from the show.  This year, it was the beloved snowman puppet.  After creating their unique puppet, children are encouraged to step behind a tiny curtain and perform with their puppet creation.

If you are looking for an indoor, educational, creative, and entertaining activity for your family, I recommend visiting the Center for Puppetry Arts puppet show!  Your ticket also includes access to the other exhibits within the Center for Puppetry Arts, so you could easily spend 2-3 hours here!  "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" runs through December 30th.  You can check out the ticket and show details at http://www.puppet.org/.  Special thanks to the kind folks at Brave PR for hosting us!
