Disability Education & Awareness Programs/Puppet Troupe

Please note we are not currently taking bookings for the Sunshine Butterflies Puppet Troupe however, please keep your eyes peeled for any future development with this program. If you wish to register your interest for a possibility in the future please contact us.

Welcome to the Puppet Troupe! A recently developed Disability Education & Awareness program presented by Sunshine Butterflies Inc.

Fraser and his friends are a bunch of life-sized puppet kids who all have various disabilities. They present themselves as regular kids whose bodies do not work the same as other kids. They will share how they think and feel and for some how difficult it is for them to move or communicate. Fraser and his friends are not only entertaining, but do normal things like bike riding, swimming, sleepovers, camping, parties and just hanging out with friends.

About our Puppet Troupe

The Puppet Troupe program has been specifically designed by professional educators to promote positive inclusion for children with a disability. The program helps to breakdown the confusion and misunderstanding surrounding disability as well as helping kids to learn about acceptance, understanding and compassion. As a learning incentive, the audience will be invited to ask any questions they may have and later have the opportunity to experience how specific disabilities affect children by using items from our sensory toolbox. Its a guarantee that Fraser and his friends will have both children and adults learning from this experience. We are available to visit Schools, Libraries, Childcare Centres, Community Groups and Playgroups. For some more info please check out the Puppet Troupe Flyer

Our Feedback

 

“The children had a wonderful time interacting with the puppets and staff and were talking about all the sensory activities for the rest of the day and the next day to children who hadn’t attended the show.”
