Hand Puppet Play

  • Any Hand Puppet (animal/face).
  • Yourself.
  • Place a puppet on your hand.
  • Move puppet up and down, while saying baby’s name.
  • See if they can follow the movement.
  • Then move the puppet in a circle.
  • As soon as they can follow the movement, try different movements.

Puppets are great fun for children of any age. You can use puppets to develop children’s language skills as well as their social and play skills. The goal is to help your child follow and track a visually interesting object (puppet) in this activity. If available, use different puppets and try different movements such up/down on my mum’s head/on baby’s tummy and from side to side.
