  • Scripture reference in Table of Contents,
  • Directions for creating a stage,
  • Simple Bible costumes for puppets,

The twenty scripts you'll find in Instant Puppet Skits have something in common: each features a Bible character who met Jesus and shares a personal insight. John the Baptist tells his would-be, disgusted director that he is not the star attraction, that his purpose was to prepare people to follow Jesus, and while Lazarus tries to collect a refund on his burial, he explains eternal life for those who believe. And you'll find that the scripts have other things in common too:
  • Scripts have no more than four puppets on stage at any one time, and you can re-use the same four "actors" with different costumes to limit the costs of the puppets!
  • Four or less puppets per script makes it easy for you to recruit enough puppeteers!
  • Yet the audience is involved. In "Fish and Loaves", the audience acts the part of the crowd, each of them stuffed with food.
  • After each script you'll find group discussion points in the "For Deeper Learning" section.
Welcome to the show!
Want to see a child’s eyes light up? Introduce the child to a puppet. Puppet shows are a surefire way to snag a child’s attention. And that makes puppet shows a compelling way to introduce children to Bible stories and Bible characters.

And you’ll find that the scripts have other things in common too:
  • Each script provides a way to involve the audience. Sometimes they’ll have a part in the skit, and other times they’ll provide a sound effect or a prop.
  • After each script you’ll find questions designed to help children apply what they’ve experienced and draw closer in their own relationships with Jesus.
  • Scripts have no more than four puppets on stage at any one time, and often fewer. That makes it easy for you to recruit enough puppeteers!
  • And each script is already recorded on a fun soundtrack. You and your puppeteer friends don’t have to worry about digging up sound effects or reading the lines as you perform. It’s already done for you!
