Puppet show on Life of the Buddha (Year 2008)

Every year, the children listen to the story of Buddha, about how he was born and how he became the Buddha. We were afraid that the children might get bored if we tell the story again and so, for this year, we did a puppet show on life of the Buddha. We made the children perform for two purposes, one to perform during Wesak Day celebration and the other to make them remember the details during practice.


The puppets were made from printed out pictures of the characters and scenes, glued to a stick (as shown in picture) and the story was recorded with narration mixed with songs from “Come and See” album. Some girls were assigned to sing along while the some others played the puppets.



The children learn while they perform and during Wesak Day celebration 2008, they managed to put tears in some audience’s eyes. One of the weaknesses of this puppet show is the puppets printed. The color was not sharp and bright enough and many couldn’t see from behind. We can improve on that in future.


I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has chipped in their effort to make it work. To the principle of SDS and facilitators, I’m proud of our team spirit. It’s always a pleasure to work with all of you. To Cheng Sim and Mrs. Yong, thank you both for helping out. Without the two of you, the show would not go on so smoothly.

Hi Jo-N, guess you a Buddhist?
I am. Wife Catholic, but a believer in Buddha.
I have an alter here. Also believe in Sai Baba.
And have had some strange, but unusual mysterious experiences in our place too.
Once awhile we get a nice beautiful flowery scent, day or night.
And its not from my wife's perfume.
You keep well, Lee.

Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you've done a very good job with this.

In addition, the blog loads super quick for me on Chrome.
Excellent Blog!
