Bed Bugs! Camp (1 Week Class)

Description: Are wicked witches always bad?  That depends on your perspective.  Marie is a little girl who likes to jump on her bed, but to the bedbugs being squished underfoot, she is the wicked witch who causes earthquakes.  The microscopic citizens of her bed are up in arms over the rhyme Marie’s mother says to her every night before bed:  “Good night, sleep tight.  Don’t let the bedbugs bite.” Peter, an impassioned bedbug, feels they must take action against the “witch”.  Patsy, however, prefers a peaceful approach and wants to talk to the witch and work something out.  Despite Patsy’s objections, the bedbugs launch a full-scale attack against Marie, prompting her to investigate with her magnifying glass.  To her surprise, there really are bedbugs…  and they have something to say! In a fun way, it reminds us there are always two sides to every story and that conflict is best resolved peacefully.

The Unprincess (1 Week Class)
