DIY Petruk & Bagong Wayang

As family living abroad, we keep connecting our kids with our origin culture. So when they grow up with the multi-nationality society, they will not losing their identity and still have knowledge about Indonesia's culture, language, art & folklore.

In this holiday, we introduce wayang to them. We choose the Punakawan character Petruk & Bagong for the DIY wayang project. We tell the story & tale about Punakawan. They laughing madly when they know one of the character, Semar, uses fart as the weapon. After drawing the character, kids coloring it with their own colors. Purple and pink! :D

Done with coloring, now we put the join for the body & hand. Then snitch the wooden sticks for crochet.

Tah dah! Petruk & Bagong are ready. Now we're creating a stage from cardboard box.

Neo is waiting for the wayang show by his sister. There you go!

We think this Wayang Mahabharata animation is good introduction to wayang for our kids. Done by Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS) college student in Surabaya, Indonesia. Take a look!
