 Three months ago my husband and I took my son to the Center of Puppetry Arts.    We wanted something different to do and well that just happened to be what "I" picked along with riding the Marta train since Connor is really into trains.

Once we got there we were able to take a tour of the museum.  It had all types of different puppets and explanations on how they worked etc.

After viewing the museum we went upstairs and my son had the opportunity to make his own puppet.  We were there to see "Charlotte's Web" so he made Wilbur the pig.... ( i think that is the pig's name)

At last it was time for the puppet show.  We sat down, the lights dimmed, and we were brought into the magical world of puppetry!  It truely was amazing!   The puppeteers were extremely talented and i do not remember at any moment thinking, "i'm looking at a puppet".  It was a play with puppets and put on with perfection!

After the play, the puppeteers came on stage and explained how puppets work and how they made everything look "so real."

I think my husband (who is originally from Mexico and  had never seen a puppet show before) was just as amazed as my son!

Upon leaving we stopped by the gift shop and we purchased a t-shirt. If you are in the Atlanta area and have not been, GO!  If you are outside of the Atlanta area I urge you to search for puppet shows around your area.
It was such a magical experience for my child ( and my husband as well, i think.... lol)!

We will definetly be going back.  Please visit their website above to view their schedule and upcoming performances.

It made such a big impact, that we ended up having a puppet show here at home for our neighbors.
