The two-part Create-A-Puppet Workshop with Lolly Lardpop ran Sunday from 4PM to 6:30PM in International South (Hyatt). Participants were given a bag with the pieces and instructions needed to make their own Lolly Lardpop. On each of four long tables were supplies like glue sticks, markers, scissors, and construction paper to allow the construction of the puppet. The tables were different heights for the smaller participants.
Leslie Carrara-Rudolph was the special guest on hand, and of course, Lolly Lardpop made the rounds to all the tables to offer encouragement. It was fantastic watching kids (and adults) make a new friend, and it was especially a joy to watching parents work with their kids. There seemed to have been a lot of bonding and creating going on. Both new friends and lasting memories were made.
