Learning Stages

Young children enjoy talking while playing with puppets.You can make simple puppets from old socks or paper bags. Sew on buttons for eyes and use thread or markers for other features. Encourage your child to name the puppets and to tell you about them. Examples: I see you have a frog puppet. What is its name? Can this frog talk? Frog, what do you like to eat?
