Hot Cross Bun Puppet – Easter Teaching Set

Quantity of Chocolate Hearts

Not sure what to do for your Easter teaching this year?


Children learn so much better when the message is brought to life with a story, visual aid and with something to take home to help make it stick!


Harold Carter-Bunnington is our Hot Cross Bun puppet, a fantastic character and an ideal way to bring the Easter message to life! This complete Easter Teaching Set includes the Hot Cross Bun Puppet, gold wrapped chocolate hearts and handouts for all the children to take home and a full script (in two formats). You too can share the amazing Easter story in a memorable new way in your Sunday School groups, kids church, school assemblies, All-Age services or Easter celebration events!


The presentation works through the message of Easter by using the elements of a Hot Cross Bun to represent the different parts of the story.


Chocolate hearts (approx. 34mm wide) are individually wrapped in gold foil and are available in quantities of 25, 50, 75 or 150. Also included are precut handout sheets for each sweet with a summary of the message. Additional chocolate hearts can be ordered separately for larger groups, see related products below.


Harold Carter-Bunnington measures approx. 20cm wide and is finished in high quality fleece fabric with “raisin” details and a pale coloured fleece cross. Includes a gripped Creative Production, easy to use, mouth plate and long black sleeve to hide the puppeteer’s arm.


The script included is written in two formats:
1) Whispering Technique (only one person needed)
This script has your spoken lines and the puppet’s actions, so can be performed by one person with the puppet on their arm without the need for a puppet theatre. Ideal for when using with smaller groups.


2) Two Characters (two people needed)
This script has two separate spoken parts designed for one person to operate Harold Carter-Bunnington within the puppet theatre and another person out front interacting with him. May also be used with two puppets behind the puppet stage.


Also included is a summary of the message for a quicker presentation if needed. The exact colour tone may differ slightly to those shown on screen. Every Hot Cross Bun is baked in a different way so exact raisin position may vary! Available exclusively from One Way UK.

    Harold the Hot Cross Bun…what can I say, he is fantastic…and loved by young…and old(er)! We used him for the first time yesterday at an Easter Activity Event which was put on by our local Community Partnership. We used the script that Harold had come with, gave out the Chocolate Hearts and the Take Homes Cards. As a church we had provided ‘Hot Cross Buns’ to the event so Harold was the perfect way to get a simple Christian message about Easter across to the children and families who were there…which included a family who had recently arrived from Ukraine. While the children couldn’t understand what Harold said they really enjoyed meeting him…and having a go with him after everyone else had left. So if you are looking for a fun way to explain the Easter Story…either in church our outside of the standard church context…then look no further than Harold the Hot Cross Bun…I dare anyone not to fall in love with him and learn something from his script! We love him…and know you will too!
