I Think You're Wonderful?

uglyduckingpuppetChildren in grades k-2 explore and learn to appreciate our differences, They come to realize that our differences make us all beautiful in our own way. We talk about the “jewels” inside all of us (kindness, joy, helpfulness, etc.) and that the combination of our inner “jewels” and outer differences make us all wonderful!! With the help of colorfully illustrated books, Lady J tells the story of The Ugly Duckling. This launches a conversation about talking to children who look different from us and talking to them to find their inner “jewels”– and maybe, gain a new friend!

The lessons come to life, as the children make paper-bag ducklings ( see photo). We talk about the differences in the ducklings and the “jewels” each child has assigned to him/her.

A tea party is available as an option for groups of 12 or fewer.

What Makes Us All wonderful is available as a stand-alone workshop or as part of a Simple Etiquette for Princesses & Knights series.
