A simple way to teach the gospel to children using a puppet

My friend Martin Olmos teaches the Bible regularly to children at church with “Stinky Pong the Smelly Puppet” (who lives in a wheelie bin). I’ve participated in a few of the shows and scripts and they’re good quality! Martin has created a website to share his scripts – check it out:

Stinky: The puppet for lazy average wannabe puppeteers

Martin writes:

Stinky Pong the Smelly Puppet gives normal people the power of puppets. It is a format that is effective and simple, requiring little equipment, people, and specialist skills. It’s designed to help people with no puppet experience to get into it. You only need one puppet, one puppeteer, one leader, and no stage (just a 240 litre wheelie bin!).

The website includes:

  • Stinky Guide: A document with all the details on how to ‘do Stinky’.
  • Annotated example script: Explains how a typical script is structured and might work.
  • Script template: A helpful template to get you writing your own scripts.
  • Powerpoint template: helpful for showing Bible verses and ‘Bible Bites’.
  • Free scripts from many years of puppeteering: tested with real, live children!
