Frequently asked questions:

What does an event involve?

Your event begins with a welcome and overview of the party happenings. Children can choose to participate in the Caps for Sale musical or be part of the audience.

A musical Interactive Performance: During the performance of Caps for Sale and Circus Caps for Sale children will be asked the meaning of special words, learn the Caps for Sale song and its accompanying dance, distinguish colors, and become active players in the stories, using their creativity to play the parts of monkeys in book one and circus band entertainers in book two.

A discussion period follows. Children will be asked what they thought of the Peddler’s adventures, why he is special, and why they are special.

After the show children explore the book illustrations and practice their hand at collage making.
