MermaidTV: Puppets in Paper and The Mermaid Workshop

Virtual program. Digital content will be available April – June 2021. Due to licensing restrictions, this education program is available to private and public schools, state registered homeschools and state licensed family or group childcare centers that usually attend the Amcor Education Series.​

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s innovative performance-based emotional learning series Puppets in Paper takes you and “Pip,” a paper bag puppet, through colorful worlds and emotional experiences. Pip was created to be gender neutral and all performances are non-verbal, supported by soft coloring for children on the spectrum. 

This production is a series of bite-sized videos that you can play at your own pace. Half of the videos show the puppet Pip as they explore their emotions, and the other half invites children to play along with their very own Pip.

The Mermaid Workshop, hosted by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s Director of Education and Outreach, Struan, shows you how to make puppets out of resources commonly found in the classroom or at home. Each episode ends with a short scene showing how much fun you can have playing with puppets.

Key Themes: Creativity, Language Skills, Relationships, Fine Motor Skills, Problem Solving
