Magic of Storytelling with the Easter Kite Story Puppet Play - Mini-Workshop for Parents/Daycare Providers/Teachers Who Love Bringing Joy to Children

Storytelling is one of the easiest, enjoyable ways to be connect deeply with children 2-7 years old. Telling a story by heart engages a different part of the brain than reading a story does and research is showing that the rewards are far reaching for listener and teller. I promise you, developing your storytelling skill will be so satisfying for you and the children you share it with !!!

* Thomas Moore calls storytelling the "essential skill of parenting"  
* Albert Einstein recommended it as  the "number one activity parents can do to support their child's brain development and intelligence"
* Brain science is showing us that it lights up and grows the centers in the brain associated with empathy and supports reading, tracking and comprehension.

Wherever you are or aren't in accessing your innate storytelling abilities this workshop will support you. The oral tradition of storytelling is the medium by which we humans passed on information and survived since the beginning of time so it is in each of us  - we are wired to tell and hear stories and are deeply nourished by it.

In this workshop you will learn a well-loved Easter tale to share with your children this Easter time. Through the process of creating a 'puppet play' for this Easter story you will learn the tricks of the trade that are aimed at creating a nourishing memorable experience for you and the children you love and make some fun props that you will take home with you at the end of our time together.

Dr. Monika has taught storytelling to parents and teachers for the last 11 years. Stories offer our children a much welcomed pause and feeling of safety and belonging. Coming to this mini-workshop is an easy first step in becoming masterful in your storytelling.
