Hand puppets

Hand PuppetsHand puppets are easy for young children to make and once finished are both fun to use and help develop early language and turn taking – important skills in making first friends.

What you need:

  • Paper lunch bags
  • Crayons or coloured pens
  • Stickers and paper to add eyes, hair and other accessories
  • Glue

Give each child a paper bag or two and help them to make faces on one side. Engage your child while they are making their puppet by asking them questions like, is your puppet a person or is it a friendly monster? How many eyes does it have? Is your puppet happy or sad, etc.

Once they have finished it’s time to play!
