Do you think it is a good way of someone expressing himself...?

Put yourself in a child's situation....
  • perhaps you are not a child who finds it very easy to express yourself.....
  • not comfortable talking to your parents or siblings....
  • not very self confident.....
  • not very talkative....
Puppets.....hmmmmm! Now I think there is an answer for the above...
  • puppets are a great medium for kids to express their feelings...
  • if a child has a problem...more than likely if he has a puppet he will use puppet to say what he is feeling inside!
  • kids with learning difficulties such as speech problem & other---respond well to puppets
  • language skills
  • can help with behavior problems
  • social problems
  • story telling
Last but not least Puppets are a lot of fun...anyone can be a child again.....They are ideal for any age group...
  • One can introduce them to babies by Parents take on the role of using puppets as an aid to tell stories...
  • As the child grow older they can tell their stories to their dolls or teddies ...pretend play!
  • they are great as group play...lots of fun and interaction!

  1. home
