What’s the 'more'? Your students thoroughly engaged by the show and ready to apply what they’ve learned in the show.
Steven Craig’s educational performance programs have been designed to enhance high-quality early learning among children attending preschools.
Blending magic, puppetry, and join-in storytelling, he uses a variety of engaging performance techniques which capture the attention of young children, involve them throughout the show, and reinforce key messages about important developmental and safety topics, including nutrition, dental hygiene, caring for the environment and abduction prevention.
"Christ's Church Nursery School recently held a Dad's Night for all the children and their dads at our school and we were fortunate to have Steven Craig's 'Silly Time Magic Show' as our entertainment for the evening. Steven was a big hit with the children and adults. He was able to capture their attention and keep it throughout the 45 minute show. Even some of our more questioning boys were heard to utter "this has to be a magic show - how did he do that!" As director, I was delighted with Steven's command of the audience and how much he was able to involve the children in the magic of the show. In the past I have had to intervene to help the entertainment keep the crowd under control, but not this time. Steven was able to work magic himself. I was also pleased that Steven was able to gear his show to the age level of the children. All in all, we had a delightful evening with Steven and I would totally recommend him to other groups looking for some wholesome entertainment."
