Kids on the Block Puppets

Kids on the Block is a free educational service that uses child-sized puppets to teach children about topics such as abuse, bullying, nutrition and drug prevention.  The troupe performs shows for children in kindergarten through 5th grade in four priority areas: personal safety, violence prevention, drug prevention and mental health. Important topics within those areas include abuse, divorce, obesity, bullying, nutrition and stranger danger. Children are taught about these difficult-to-discuss subjects in a non-threatening and fun way.
