Here at Adafruit, we are big fans of puppetry! While some view it as an art form of the past, we think there’s never been a more exciting time to get into puppets, with all the resources available to build and share. We even have a few projects of our own you can check out.

There’s even a few official ways to ring in the holiday, check out this info from UNIMA – Union Internationale de la Marionnette.

The XXth UNESCO World Day of Peace will take place on September 19th, 2020 in Tolosa, Spain, with the participation of international choirs who will perform an original composition written by Josu Elberdin for the occasion. The puppet will be present to give, with freedom, a visual dimension to these moments sung together.

UNIMA proposes World Puppetry Day on March 21, 2020 to be as a first step in this celebration. UNIMA proposes two ways to participate:

The video – A song for PEACE
UNIMA invites its members from around the world to perform live or recorded the composition of the World Day of Peace with adults, children, singers and amateurs, puppeteers, alone or in a group, bringing it to life with a puppet, an object, craft paper, clay, in shadow, with images (drawing, collage…), etc. The score mixes English, Spanish, French and Basque. For those who want to sing it, we’ll facilitate the pronunciation. Don’t be afraid, it’s easy! UNIMA invites you to sing “PEACE” to celebrate it in as many places ​​of the world as possible!

And, here’s some more info from the Puppetteers of America.


As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE.
