Skill of the Month

Language Skills and Confidence in Public Speaking Through Puppetry

This month’s activity is inspired by Rajasthani puppets or Kathputlis. They are the most popular form of Indian puppetry and the art form is thousands of years old. Puppets are enjoyed by kids and adults alike. With puppetry, kids get to learn the skill of narrating a story, building language and conversation skills. They stimulate a child’s imagination and encourage creative play. Putting up a puppet theatre play, encourages even the most quiet child to take on a role “behind the scenes” and build confidence in public speaking.

DEV AND OLLIE : CAMEL CAPERS
Author: Shweta Aggarwal, Illustrator: Somnath Chatterjee

When Dev was disappointed that he couldn’t see any camels in his local zoo, his magical owl Ollie, takes him to the Pushkar Camel Fair in Rajasthan. Dev is surprised to see hundreds of camels at the fair and is curious to know about all the camel contests, but he finds one sad camel at the mela (fair). Of course, the duo want to help that camel and make her happy. But why was the camel sad? And how did the Dev and Ollie pair help her?
