Songs, Stories and Puppets

Fridays at 10:00 – 10:30 am

A variety show for the under 5 crowd, “Songs, Stories & Puppets” is the trifecta that could help form your baby’s first sentence: “Is it Friday?”

Join us every Friday for “Songs, Stories and Puppets” — 30 minutes of storytelling, dancing, singing and entertainment for your child. Stay around afterwards for some time to socialize with other parents and kids!

David Greenfieldboyce is a puppeteer, former teacher, stay-at-home dad for his 18-month-old son, and a Mount Pleasant resident. He’s also the same dynamo who organizes the Mount Pleasant Children’s Puppet Hour.

Suggested donation: $5 per child.
