Children's Museum of Southern Minnesota

Mankato, mn


In 2012, the Children's Museum of Southern MN hosted a week-long Monkey Mind Pirates residency, combining puppetry, music and mindfulness. Using the story of a ship's Captain who overcomes the stress, anxiety and distraction of the Monkey Mind Pirates as a springboard, children ages 8-11 do yoga, puppetry and songwriting. The participants create and perform scenes alongside Z Puppets and a 3-piece band in a professional public production.
