Early Years Resources stocks a great range of children’s hand puppets which help improve the quality of imaginative play sessions in any early years setting.
Our children’s puppets provide a whole host of benefits to your children’s development. A puppet can act as a middleman for children who don’t feel fully comfortable opening up to other children or teachers and as they role-play with them they can take on new personalities and share their stories. Additionally, puppets allow children to fully express themselves and enhance emotional development. As puppets can take on a wide range of emotions, children can learn to empathise with other puppets and learn to deal with their own emotions by comforting them. Puppets are also great for aiding in language and listening development. Children feel more confident using English and experimenting with new words around other people and out loud if they are taking on a different character from themselves. As children role-play with these puppets they learn good behavioural habits. As they gather with their friends to role-play with puppets they learn how to appropriately play with others, how to work together and how to help each other out.
Our range of children's hand puppets ranges from animal hand puppets to storytelling hand puppets, educational hand puppets and puppets that help with depicting people and emotions. We also have a range of finger puppets that vary from animal finger puppets to people puppets, in addition to this we supply hand and finger puppet theatres for children to truly immerse themselves into imaginative play. Last but not least, we also provide storytelling puppets which include a range of characters from popular children’s literature.
