Ready For Immediate FREE Download ..................7 Easy To Create & Perform Puppet Plays That Will Keep Young Children Busy & Happy For Many Many Hours .......... Great fun, especially on those rainy days ...........

Create Your Own Puppet Pantomime

The free downloads on this page enables young puppeteers (recommended ages: 4 to 10) to create and perform their own puppet plays, using pre-recorded stories and stick puppet figures and props. This will provide many hours of inexpensive, safe and creative fun and activity for young children in their own homes, with parents, grandparents, and friends. A great 'rainy day' activity, and also good for learning basic skills in organisation & planning.

Each of the seven plays available (at right) is full of happy music and humour, and gives a uniquely Australian (often humourous) spin on traditional stories, including the great children's tales of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, Noddy, and Hanzel & Gretal. Enjoy the tangles of Red Robin, the Bunyips and The Old Croc with old foes - The Big Bad Wolf and The Wicked Witch. The characters and plays, and most of the music, are original compositions by Jim Vickers-Willis. You can find out more about Jim's inspiring life story in other sections of this website.

The Puppets are just waiting for budding young puppeteers to bring them to life. Kids love creating the puppets, and then performing their plays for parents, grandparents and friends, as demonstrated in these two YouTube videos (left click on each to start the video):
