What’s pulling your strings?

I grew up playing with marionette puppets—jointed wooden animals, people, and mythical beasts controlled from above by long strings attached to their moving parts. By manipulating the strings, I could make a marionette walk, run, wave, bow, or move its mouth, while I, the puppeteer, did the talking.

Recently I brought some of these childhood marionettes to my Christian Science Sunday School class for my six-year-old students to get to know. It wasn’t long before the kids were taking turns making the dog bounce and wag its tail and the dragon cruise around the room flapping its wings. 

We'd love to hear from you!
