This is a lovely set of activities for children - firstly reading the wonderful book What Does an Anteater Eat? by Ross Collins, then watching the puppet play of the story, and finally making one of the puppets from the play ...
1. Read the story What Does an Anteater Eat?
The book is primarily aimed at 2-5 year olds, but the play and puppet making can be enjoyed by all primary-aged children.
2. Watch the puppet play of the story.
Little Angel Theatre has partnered with Toby Olié to bring you his puppet retelling of the story, made entirely during lockdown. This performance is available online until Tuesday 1 September 2020.
3. Learn how to make the anteater puppet from the play.
Puppetry director and designer Toby Olié shows you how to make the anteater puppet featured in his puppet performance of the story.
Little Angel Theatre have also produced online resources, stories and activities for use at home for 3-6 years and 7-11 year olds, as well anyone interested in puppetry. You can also watch more online shows on the Little Angel Theatre YouTube Channel.
If you have enjoyed any of these free resources from Little Angel Theatre, please consider making a donation to support the theatre in this time of lockdown.
