A Hand Puppet


enchants you

You're captivated by the unique charm of hand puppets and can't help but feel irresistibly drawn to them. Deep inside, you've always dreamed of using a puppet as a transformative tool to connect with children, to bring more playfulness into your own life, and maybe even to rediscover a lost piece of yourself that's yearning to come out.

Yet, something's holding you back—perhaps it's insecurity or just the comfort of staying in your well-known zone. You might also be thinking you don't have the time to truly master this skill, or maybe you're hesitant because you're not sure how to start.

Whatever it is, know this: You're not alone, and this is the place where you can turn those hesitations into actions.

Welcome to the Puppet Power Playschool: Where Imperfection Meets Connection

A Space to Learn, Laugh and To Embrace the Playfulness Within Yourself

Focused on building meaningful relationships

Many people have different perspectives on what a hand puppet is or could be. You might see it as a technical skill, an object performing tricks to elicit reactions, or perhaps something more. What if you could view a puppet as a unique character, one that effortlessly forms genuine connections—often with children—that you couldn't forge any other way?

That's how I see it. To me, a hand puppet isn't just about technique or tricks; it's a full-fledged character that allows me to connect in ways I couldn't otherwise. A puppet can have its own voice, its own ambitions, and a genuine curiosity about the world. It's not an act or a role-play; it's an entirely different role from my own, and one that opens doors to remarkable connections and possibilities. Does that resonate with you?

Wish -> Dare -> Do

What your puppet displays and achieves determines its value

I know you recognize the puppet's potential and aim to utilize it fully. You have observed the interactions between the child and the puppet, and want to harness this dynamic to communicate your message more effectively. You intend to use the puppet to practice skills, make learning more fun, and gain insights into the child's thoughts and emotions.

Anything you aim to achieve, a puppet can accomplish for you, sometimes even more effectively than you could on your own. Children do not perceive the puppet as an educator or someone with authority, and that results in different, often more open, responses.

Are you looking to deepen your understanding of advanced puppetry, or ' the Hand Puppet 2.0.,' as I like to call it? Would you like to feel confident about what you're doing, why you're doing it, and, most importantly, how you can make the puppet work effectively for you?

Elevate Your Puppetry Skills: A Journey Together

Unleash Your Puppetry Wishes:

I understand how daunting it can be to regularly engage with your puppet, particularly when past experiences haven't lived up to your hopes. I want to help you break that cycle. Many puppets sit unused on shelves for reasons that are easily fixable. Often, a slight tweak in your approach or a simple rephrasing can produce different—and better—results. Let me guide you to experience these transformative shifts.

Embrace the Dare:

Using a hand puppet effectively isn't a walk in the park; it often takes courage to take that first step. You might feel exposed, under a spotlight, or simply uncomfortable with your puppet. It might seem easier to leave the puppet on the shelf, but is that really what you want?

Wouldn't you prefer to venture out, even if it's one small step at a time? Especially when you have the guidance of someone who has navigated these challenges countless times before?

Turn Vision into Reality:

You purchased your puppet with a dream in mind, and then you encountered hurdles that made your plan seem unattainable. Perhaps you started strong but were sidelined by life's unpredictabilities, leaving your puppet gathering dust.

Working with a puppet does come with its share of challenges. Even with good technique and initial success, various factors can derail your progress—maybe a new group of children react differently, a new colleague finds it peculiar, or a child's adverse reaction leaves you questioning your approach.

The truth is, it's often not about you. Every child, situation, and challenge is unique, demanding nuanced adjustments. While there's no one-size-fits-all solution, there are universal principles that can be adapted to fit your specific needs. These principles allow you to construct a tailored strategy for each child, each circumstance, and each unique challenge you face.

I want to help you gain control over:

Elevate to Hand Puppet 2.0

A puppet is not just a toy; it's a powerful tool for engagement and connection. Do you sense the untapped possibilities but struggle with the 'how-to's'? Let me guide you through it.

Like you, I wasn't born a puppeteer. I faced the same challenges, self-doubts, and insecurities that may be holding you back now. The spotlight isn't where I naturally feel at home, either.

However, what I've learned is that mastering a puppet doesn't have to be complex. The rewards far outweigh the efforts, and the beauty of it is, I can teach you how to unlock your potential in this.

So, are you:

  • A parent or grandparent eager to foster deeper, more playful connections with your child or grandchild?
  • A teacher with a classroom puppet, yet unsure how to maximize its potential?
  • A child coach or counselor who finds it challenging to animate your puppet?
  • A community care worker looking to expand your skill set through puppetry?
  • A group leader intrigued by the potential impact a puppet could have on your work?
  • Or simply someone who cherishes the charm of puppets and wants to delve deeper into their world?

And are you:

  • On the hunt for a judgment-free zone to explore and play?
  • Keen to streamline your puppet-based activities?
  • Desirous to infuse more character and depth into your puppet?
  • Striving for more consistent and meaningful puppet interactions?
  • Aiming to ease into puppetry without the stress?
  • Longing for newfound confidence in your puppetry skills?

Why a membership instead of a regular public group?

Throughout the years, I've built an extensive library of activities, tips, videos, and more. These resources are specially curated and crafted based on practical experiences and feedback. They aren't just 'any' content found freely online. Instead, they represent a concentrated effort to deliver quality and effectiveness. By placing a value on them through a modest fee, I ensure that members are genuinely interested and invested in maximizing their puppetry skills. It's not just about compensating for the effort and knowledge that goes into these resources; it's also about creating a committed community of learners. When people invest even a small amount, they're more likely to be engaged and make the most of the tools at their disposal. This in turn makes the entire community more vibrant and productive, as everyone is motivated to share, learn, and grow.

I am eager to collaborate with motivated individuals and create a community, believing that collective energy will result in valuable interactions. It's always beneficial to reflect upon and learn from like-minded peers. I aim to help you realize that you're not alone nor the only one facing...

This membership is for you, the enthusiast eager to make the most of your puppet,for you full of questions and undergoing a journey. I appreciate journeys, regardless of their challenges and the frustrations they may stir. Personally, I've always been someone who reaches the finish line by tripping and stumbling, surviving on sheer willpower, and diving deep time and again when I believe there's more to uncover.

If there's one thing you can learn from me, it's the art of rising after a fall, of picking up the pieces after setbacks, and of reenergizing yourself when things don't go as planned. My most significant accomplishment isn't just my puppeteering skill, but my unwavering commitment to my beliefs. It's about overcoming my limitations to reach where I want to be. I always find a way, and I can assist you in finding yours.

After years of development and experimentation, the time has come to share my expertise on a global scale. My primary focus is on those eager to take both small and significant strides with their puppet. I will provide the tools to aid you on this journey. This membership is one such tool.

Is this membership the same as a course or coaching?

No, this membership is not the same as a course. A course typically has a structured outline, a start and end date, and a specific learning objective. For coaching, the same applies: you and I work specifically towards your goals within a predetermined timeframe. This membership is more of an ongoing community where you gain access to valuable resources, advice, and interaction with like-minded individuals.

Within the membership, there's room for flexibility, personal growth, and direct interaction. It's a platform where you can continuously obtain new insights, tips, and support, depending on your current needs. It's a vibrant community where you can learn from both me and other members.

Adding to that, as a part of this membership, you'll receive ongoing coaching, tailored to guide you and help overcome any challenges you face with your puppetry journey.

Moreover, as an added benefit of being a member, you'll be entitled to a 20% discount on enrollments for courses and coaching sessions.

So, instead of a fixed curriculum, like in a course, the membership offers you a dynamic learning environment that adapts to the needs and questions of its members.
