Dogworthy's Christmas Cracker
A crackerful of Christmas fun for ages 3-9

Dogworthy Cracker

Dogworthy the magician launches his latest Christmas show with a giant cracker.   To make it go with a bang, he has had to test-drive a whole range of new tricks. There are flying baubles, enough (real pretend) snow to make a snowman, and a tobogganing mini Punch & Judy ~ plus the traditional carol-singing from Mouse. Together with Holly ~ his guitar-playing friend and dog-talk interpreter ~ Dogworthy hopes you will join in the fun as the cast all wish you a Merry Christmas!

“LOVE IT! Beautifully done... so enjoyable for both adults and children. My boys adored Dogworthy and found him hilarious. They were captivated, as was I. A wonderful Christmas treat. Thank you.”

Although the show is
dedicated to Christmas
fun, it does touch on
a variety of subjects
within the National
Curriculum which you
may wish to explore in
class. So schools are
sent a summary of the
show before Dogworthy arrives.

There are no follow-up sheets for this show. Instead, Dogworthy practices his best handwriting (& emergent spelling) to give each class a Christmas card.
