Star Wars - The Universe

Star Wars - The Universe

There are very well known different methods of showing the Star Wars Universe stories to your kids, you could just go for the Theatrical Release Date method. This is my second favourite, maybe because it’s the order in which I saw the films. Im too young to have seen the original trilogy at the cinema but I watched them in order on VHS.

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl - The Witches

Roald Dahl's The Wicthes is the final topic in our Roald Dahl month.  This story really is one of the scariest kids stories you can find and I think that is why it is so popular, I really believe that kids quite enjoy getting scared as long as it's in a safe environment.  I have utilised this in my shows. I have a puppet called Ferris, who looks like a realistic ferret, he comes out all cute and adorable the kids can pet him but then he leaps out into the audience, this delivers a real shock and scream moment in my otherwise very safe a funny shows.  This rollercoaster of emotion is what makes the best stories.  I have two brilliant ideas for you today, a great witch based game and the recipe for pea soup from the story.

Halloween - 2015

One of the major hiccups is the whole trick or treat tradition, which doesn't go down well here.  First the weather is normally freezing cold and wet and then having random strangers knocking on your door is not a very British thing to enjoy, it's really weird for us.
