Breathing life and soul into a pile of inanimate objects is impossible – or is it? Puppet Masters creates a whole heap of fun while it challenges teams to intelligently break down a project into achievable steps. Have you ever considered how many individual actions it takes to walk? It requires extreme co-ordination as you shift your weight from one leg to the other, engaging your hips, abs, waist and back to maintain balance.
You’ve undoubtedly seen 10 metre puppets on the side-lines of football matches and parading centre stage at the Olympics. Puppet Masters is your opportunity to experience the creativity and empathy required to make these giants appear human. To succeed, each team becomes a ‘nerve centre’, controlling a myriad of movements to wow colleagues with an effortless performance. Puppet Masters is a fully inclusive team activity where everybody has a clear understanding of their role in the bigger picture.
Put your teams’ communication, process improvement and operational excellence skills to the test in Puppet Masters. But it’s not all serious teamwork enhancement! Imagine the hilarity as each participant takes control of a different body part and attempts to mimic human actions like walking, waving or blowing a kiss. In the finale, the laughs continue as teams make their puppet perform a popular dance move like Gangnam Style, bringing the house down.
Learning and development outcomes
Puppet Masters is an innovative team building activity that requires all individuals to be involved in strategy and project planning, both when constructing the puppet and manipulating it. It requires keen teamwork and crystalline communication to make the puppet carry out human actions.
