Fun Therapy – Puppets

Well who doesn’t love puppets! Initially, we tried glove puppets, but due to his fine motor problems, my son got frustrated easily and refused to play. After a few years passed, we thought why not try a different approach. We got finger puppets and made stories with them, really short ones which lasted for a couple of minutes and it was a big hit! That was our breakthrough in making him shake hands as a way if greeting. Shaking hands to say hello was something my son disliked a lot. We used lots of stories where animals greeted and gradually he was okay with shaking hands to wish someone. Let’s take a peep into the world of puppets

They are lovely, aren’t they? Buy some puppets and together with some books like Panchatantra, introduce your child to a whole new world and join him/her in the fun. They can be used to practice social skills, story telling, language development, imaginative play and many more.
