Puppet shows are another means of practicing role-playing with your child and offers an ideal opportunity to communicate new thoughts and feelings. It will help you in creating more positive behaviour by subtly changing the way a child thinks about certain situations.



Puppets also help keep a young child focused on an activity such as storytime.



Educational benefits of puppets:



Communication & social skills


Creative skills - It is through imaginative play that children come to understand the differences between fantasy and reality. The real world becomes more real to children who have opportunities to pretend.



Language skills - Whether children write their own stories or adapt one of their favourite books into a play, story telling with puppets is one of the best ways for kids to build their reading, comprehension, and vocabulary skills, building on their ideas by introducing new words, their meanings and other information.
