Center for Pupptery Arts: Click Clack Moo!

Ever since Cute was born we have been collecting books for The Cutes' library. Some of our absolute favorite ones to read to the littles are by the author Doreen Cronin. All of them are fun reads with silly characters. Most notable are those in her Click Clack series

So when I heard that The Center for Puppetry Arts was doing a show based on Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type I instantly grabbed tickets for our little crew to see it. The kids were so excited and spent the morning of pouring over their Click Clack books.

Our summer so far has been filled with hot sports days, and cooling off in the pool, so heading to The Center for Puppetry Arts was a nice cool treat. An afternoon full of cow themed silliness was just what we needed. 


The Click, Clac,k Moo: Cows That Type show might be our favorite show we've seen yet at The Center For Puppetry Arts. And we've seen a ton of shows. Right from the minute it started we were laughing and singing with all of our favorite characters from the books.

It is an adapted rendition of the of the book told through puppeteers, a musician, and - of course - a variety of puppets.

There's singing. There's dancing. There's even a special surprise at the end. I'm not going to spoil it for any one, but all of my kids loved the ending.

The show is geared towards kids 4 and older, but my 2 1/2 year had no problem sitting and enjoying the approximately hour long performance. There's a ton of audience interaction to keep children of all ages engaged and entertained.


One of our favorite parts of each show is always the puppet making class that you can attend after the performance. This workshop created a Click, Clack, Cow hand puppet. 

The kids always love this part, and thought it was so fun to create a Click Clack puppet of their very own. The supplies and directions make it so easy for even non-readers to figure out how to bring their  puppet to life. 

It's also so much fun to see their own creativity be exercised with the variety of art supplies available. This lets each child put their own touch to their puppet. In my little crew I had a princess cow, a angry cow, and a Picasso cow.


I knew our trip wouldn't be complete without a quick visit to the puppet museum. The kids love this part too. Each time they stroll through seem to find something new to play with mixed in with some of their classic favorites.

If you are in the Atlanta area or visiting this summer I highly recommend cooling off with a little Click Clack fun. It's open until July 29th with several performances available each day. You can find out more about the show by checking out The Center for Puppetry Arts website
