Puppetry Field Trip

Despite snot, coughing, and illness (I'm sure we were popular) we went on the field trip yesterday to the Puppetry Arts Institute. Did you know that Kansas City once housed the world's largest puppet manufacturer? No, us either. We also learned about plastics and their widespread use only after WWII. Yay, it was good. We got a tour of the museum and then the kids got to use some of the original latex heads made by the now defunct manufacturer to create puppets. At the end they put on a puppet show. It was a good time.
