Easy puppet for kids

I absolutely loved puppet shows when I was younger; the only thing was the variety of puppets was limited! It always seemed to be the same show over and over again!! 

Just recently my kids watched a Christmas puppet show and they always loved it. It really got their imagination’s going! They keep asking me to do something similar at home! 

The good news is that I have lots and lots of easy puppets for you to make including animals, Princesses and all sorts of characters!

They will encourage your kids with story telling and help improve their speech and language! Early communication is great for preschool as well as older kids! This helps prepare them for school. 

Involve your little ones in making them and their fine motor skills and creativity will also improve! I hope you can find at least one puppet for kids here that you like
