Children aged 3 to 5 years
The real world becomes more real to children who have opportunities to pretend.
Puppets are an important extension of the pretend play that young children engage in naturally.Puppet play is imaginative and freeing. Given the right motivation and encouragement you’ll be amazed at where our children imaginations will take them.
The educational benefits of puppet play are wide and well documented.
Puppets are an ideal springboard for developing speaking and listening skills and children often communicate more easily with puppets, giving them confidence to express their ideas and feelings. Shy children can become acquainted with others through the roles they take on and children are free to try on new personalities and take them off again, broadening their own in the process.
