Lunch & Learn Puppet Building

I belong to our company's charity fundraising team. We were a little tired of the same old pizza lunches, chili cookoffs, bake sales and pub nites and they were looking for suggestions. I thought doing lunch and learns where we can learn skills from outside the office and learn about and from each other about things we do outside of work. Things like photography, knitting, flytying, card making, scrapbooking, cooking, etc. things that would be very welcome deviations from the normal everyday and a creative outlet for stress.

I agreed to kick off with something really wild and advertised a Puppet Building Lunch & Learn. Although I had a lot of people accept there was the enevitable drop off due to busy schedules. The seven that did turn out were very enthusiastic and they had a wonderful time!

We had a blast, everyone went home with their puppet and raised some money for the charity too!
So honey what did you do at work today?
