Three Little Engineering Pigs
After school programs (puppet show)
Children are natural-born engineers. At a young age they are already fascinated with building things and taking them apart to see how they work. This is exemplified by the popularity of things like building blocks, Legos, pillow forts, and sandcastles with young children. No matter if it’s at home, school, an after school programs, a park or playground, children are always building and exploring. Here at Happy Bright Kids, we would like to encourage this young interest in engineering and foster it even further. The art of puppetry is very engaging for children, and is a great vehicle by which to deliver educational material in a memorable and exciting manner. Better yet, puppet shows can be performed anywhere from a home to a school or after school programs to a library or park, That’s why we’re offering our brand new Three Little Engineers stage show. This puppet show puts an educational twist on a classic children’s story so that kids laugh while they learn.
The kids will follow the Three Little Pigs as they set out to become engineers and build their very own homes. Along the way they’ll encounter the Big Bad Building Inspector, who’s out to give them a hard time. The only way to overcome the Building Inspector is to learn more about engineering. Over the course of the show, kids will learn what engineering is, as well as the do’s and don’ts of engineering. This show has been a great success at schools, after school programs and libraries. The puppet show also comes with original music, a behind the scenes look at how the puppet show was performed, and a teachers study guide. Teachers, after school programs coordinators and librarians alike have been thrilled with the unique mixture of education and entertainment that this program includes. One after school programs coordinator in particular mentioned how she’d never seen kids so enthralled and happy to learn!

Frequently asked questions
Up to how many children can you perform for at once?
We can perform for up to 200 kids at once. However, our puppet shows are heavily reliant on interaction, so having a large amount of children in a single audience will not allow all of them to interact with the puppets and get the most out of the performance. For this reason we suggest splitting up large audiences and booking multiple puppet shows. We offer a multiple booking discount for puppet shows booked on the same day to help accomodate this.
* Joe ! Your show was Amazing. You kept their attention for over an hour and they left wanting more. Thank you so much for enriching our school summer program. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – Loren Canedas Belle Haven School 415 Ivy Drive, Menlo Park, CA 94025
