Discover Haystack Rock - Puffin Puppets

Saturday was a busy day at the Rock. There were three events going on simultaneously—a guided tide pool tour, the Great Puffin Watch, and a Discover Haystack Rock event about puffins. All three went totally perfectly. Discover Haystack Rock is an event/activity that we put on once a month throughout the summer. This month we made paper puffin puppets out of brown paper bags, paper, glue, and super fun googley eyes. The children, parents, and even grandparents loved every second of it. The wind served to be a little bit of an issue, but luckily no puffin puppets went flying away. All the kiddos walked away with a fun new Tufted Puffin puppet and a ton of new knowledge about the wonderful puffins living at Haystack Rock. It was absolutely FABULOUS!

 Yay puffins! 
A grandpa really wanted to make one for his grandson.

One Visitor took the puppet to the next level by adding eyebrows and a beautiful rainbow. 

"Quick everyone hold up their stunning puffins!"

Even our HRAP staff Kari and Jesse got involved in the fun!

Thank you to all the visitors that came out to Discover Haystack Rock with us today and there will be another chance to Discover Haystack Rock in August!
