WASH Puppets

While it’s not exactly nice to think about, the idea of how someone else’s poop can make you sick is important to understand; the disease transmission route posters designed to help you put it all together aren’t always easy to follow.

Why not make all those elements into puppets, and get children to figure it out themselves? Mr Soap, Clean Water, Germ, and more … even Mr Poop, our fabulous colleague Lisa Buckley and husband Bob Fappiano designed a fantastic series of characters children could make out of socks, cardboard and junk. They loved them!

These puppets bring to life the ‘F’ Diagram components that tell the story of faecal oral disease communication, and compliment No Strings’ Amazing Machine film, which focuses on two key issues: public health and solid waste disposal, and WASH (water, sanitation and hygiene).
