We have got for you another fun and exciting DIY activity for your little one. Finger Puppets! A simple paper wrapped around their finger can do a lot of magic. It will help them express their feelings, share their stories, and most important, listen to you! Isn’t that amazing?
Puppets prove to be engaging toys that promote the development of communication, emotional and social skills in a child. These help the child understand and learn about the world through imaginative but safe play.
So let’s get started.
What You Need:
Note: The printable can be used to teach the child about animals or simply help them share their story through the puppet.
Tip: You can create more such finger puppets using ice-cream sticks or old socks. Explore the world of puppetry.
