The use of the puppetry to tell a story is a hallmark of Waldorf education and an essential experience to a Waldorf early childhood classroom. With help of the lovingly hand crafted puppets the storyteller is able to bring to life a variety of themes and moods with the simplest of gestures. A story told with puppets creates a connection, nourishes the senses, and draws an unique participation on the part of the child.
