Puppet play helps with learning and development
Learning through play is fundamental to our children's education, helping them to develop many necessary skills. Puppets in a child care setting provide many benefits to children, including promoting a wide range of developmental aspects. They can stimulate imagination, encourage creative play and discovery, and can do wonders for language, social-emotional, cognitive and physical development.
Specific benefits of using puppets in child care include:
Social skills: Puppets can increase children's communication and social skills. Communication skills are improved by using puppets to interact with other children, which can also help shy children become acquainted with others through the roles they take on.
Emotional development: Children can be emotionally supported by giving them a "friend" to talk to, or a way to talk to other children without having to speak directly.
Language development: as children make puppets talk and interact with other puppet players, they are developing language skills.
Music appreciation: music and creative movement can be made more interesting through the use of puppets.
Motor skills: learning to manipulate the various parts of the puppet requires fine and in some cases gross motor skills.
Guidance: Children can learn appropriate behaviors by watching the puppet's example, or the puppet can introduce and explain class rules.
Encouraging creativity: Children can use puppets to come up with stories, scenarios, and creative ways to solve problems.
Promoting dramatic play: Puppets can be easy-to-manipulate characters in a variety of dramatic play themes and stories.
Thinking skills: When children use puppets to tell stories, a number of cognitive skills come into play.
Conflict resolution: The use of puppets invites role play where a teacher or parent can explore with children issues such as conflict resolution, empathy, how to deal with aggression and bullying from others, how to be kind and helpful, etc.
