Puppet Show

You can put on a puppet show using my book, Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay. First, print out the coloring pages from the FREE Stuff! page. Have students cut out their favorite character, color, and glue to a craft stick as seen in the photo.

Next, print the puppet show script from here. Cut along the dotted lines and give one part to each student. Use the stick puppets to represent each character. More than one student can play each character.

This puppet show is based on my book about sea animals cleaning the Chesapeake Bay, Olly the Oyster Cleans the Bay. Watch the book trailer below.
