World Day of Puppetry is next Wednesday, March 21st, and the perfect way to usher in the spring season.
How can you help to celebrate puppetry? Go to a puppet show at your nearest theater. Buy puppets for your children and teach them how to perform with them. Or even make a puppet of your own and share it with your friends, family, and neighbors.
