voices for your puppets

I have sooooo many puppets I really don't have just one favorite and I use several of them at my childcare center but I have a question to you who have multiple puppets.  Do you have different voices for ALL of your puppets?  I am not that great at coming up with different voices but want to use my puppets with different stories. Any suggestions??  Thanks in advanceSee More

What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
I have always loved puppets. Even as a child I was interested in the ventriloquist puppets. I am an Early Childhood Educator and so working with children I love to share my "puppet friends" with them.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
I always admired Sheri Lewis.
More About Me:
I am the Program Coordinator of Lourdes Child Care Center in Paducah, Kentucky and have taught Pre-K and Preschool. I also do workshops and trainings for Early Childhood educators. I am a wife, mother, and nana and I enjoy children's books, oil painting, reading, my animals and spending time with my family and friends.
