Getting Ready for Pre-Teen Camp Show
















August 5th we will be performing
with Black Light at a near by Pre-Teen Camp.
Stop back by to see how it went!





****UPDATE****
The kids at camp loved the show! We tried to video once again, but didn't get a lot of usable footage. The problem was that the kids liked it so much they were practically up on the stage with us!
Of course the blacklight was a hit as always, but they loved some of the skits too. Plaidman and Polkadot were two heroes that showed up and gathered quite a following. The puppet skits received a few laughs as well. Overall performing at camp was great. The kids really got into it and that was great encouragement to our Krew.
Oh! And how could I forget the Nerds???? They loved the Nerds!

  1. Just wanted to give a shout out to the great job that the King's Krew does with the black light show. We didn't see you at the pre-teen camp, but at River of Life and everyone in our group from FBC Gray's Prairie thought you guys do a fantastic job of teaching the kids. Keep up the good work.

    Everyone came away with a favorite. We especially loved the 'Glow-Kids' at the end!

    I know that God is blessing your group, I hope that you'll be able to continue in ministry to His Glory and Pleasure!

    Bless Be the name of the Lord.

Our Newest PVC Stage

Our team has always used a stage made of PVC for budget reasons.  I've reconfigured it a few times over the years.  The one we have now is the one I like the best so far.  Someone asked me to share it with them so I thought I would post it here in case anyone else was interested.

First of all there are 3 parts to the finished stage and one person could put it together alone, but two make it easier. There are two poles that go across the middle horizontally to hold everything together. And there is the actual stage part that folds up like an accordion.

Here it is from the side folded up.
Here it is unfolded and the two long pieces placed horizontally in the back.  One at the top and one lower.  This second bar really adds to the stability of the whole stage and keeps puppeteers from moving the back curtain as they go in and out.


Here is how we add the curtains.
Our curtains are in 4 parts.  The front, 2 wings and the back middle.  They are all doubled because the fabric was still …

Puppet Making Tip: Hot Glue Gun Accessory

As a puppet maker and crafter I use the hot glue gun often. You would think I would learn not to burn myself and to keep that cup of cold water nearby but I still forget after all these years.  And no matter how hard you try, sometimes you still burn yourself on the glue that gushes out and sometimes just the heat coming through the fabric can be very painful.



I found these Thermal Thimbles on clearance at Walmart and immediately saw the potential!

They are originally for ironing but they are PERFECT for working with the hot glue gun.  I've tried them already and they work great.  The glue doesn't stick to them, it peels right off.

I wish I'd known about these years ago!

I purchased mine on clearance but they aren't very expensive at regular price and they are worth every penny.  I am grateful for them each time I work with the hot glue gun.  They allow me to pinch and put pressure in tight space that in the past I would have used a chop stick or similar tool.  I sti…

Cow and Pig Puppets

I made these guys for a song we did with a fall/farm theme.  I love how they turned out.
