And of course, no field trip on puppets would be complete without actually seeing a puppet show! Now, here is the rather funny part of this experience...I knew that a puppet show would be likely to attract a young audience, but figuring that it would be a good opportunity for the boys to practice French, I decided we'd go anyway. Well...I underestimated how exclusively young the audience would be! Aside from the parents, the tiny puppet theater audience probably had an average age of 4--driven up just slightly by the ages of my own pupils! The boys were good sports about it, though. And watching the kids interact with the puppets was honestly the best part! These kind of shows encourage audience participation, and those little kids were practically dictating the plot the whole time when they weren't all but rolling on the floor with giggles. It was actually fantastic. :) Although it's in French, check out the clip to see what kind of mad house we got ourselves into!
