Making sock puppets is a great activity to enhance a child’s brain and body. They have to use their imagination to create the characters. Making the puppets involves cutting, drawing, and gluing which will help develop fine motor skills.
Why do it?
Making and playing with puppets gives tamariki an opportunity to:
- create characters and tell or retell stories about them
- strengthen fine motor skills through cutting, drawing, sticking or gluing
- have a fun activity using everyday items
- give the lost socks a new life.
