PACER puppets make a lasting impression on young children
Capturing the attention of young children isn’t easy, but PACER’s endearing, life-size puppets have a special way with kids that leaves a lasting impression. Since 1979, nearly half a million children have experienced the way PACER’s multicultural puppets deliver important messages of tolerance and inclusion – and bullying prevention – to schools and organizations across the country. Using an engaging, child-friendly approach, trained volunteers present a message-filled show that is creative and fun yet deals with sensitive subjects in a realistic way. Through the puppet show and discussion, the puppets educate, entertain, and inspire.
