Wiggle Wednesdays for Toddlers

Center for Puppetry Arts

Ages 2-4 

The Center’s popular toddler programming moves to Wednesdays this season. Toddlers sing, move, and play with programming that encourages creativity. Each Wednesday features puppet-led storytelling, songs, movement, a craft, and a hands-on tour through our Worlds of Puppetry Museum. The program is designed to be developmentally appropriate for the littlest puppeteers-in-training.
