LCA was excited to host Kids on the Block today! These lovable puppets spent time with Pre-K through 4th grade students teaching valuable lessons and having a blast!
The Kids on the Block are a tightly-knit group of lovable puppets who have been entertaining and educating young audiences for three decades. The troupe, comprised of puppets with and without disabilities, offer kids the opportunity to learn about specific disabilities, as well as broader themes of friendship, community-building, the importance of expressing feelings and celebrating differences. The shows also encourage children to ask questions about disabilities that they might be afraid to ask someone they meet in public. Don’t let their age fool you—the Kids on the Block are very knowledgeable! Plus, through our Pen Pal program, audience members who do not have the chance to ask questions at the show can have their questions answered by mail! Performances are offered to schools, places of worship and community groups. **From the official Kids on the Block website
