Nursery Age 1 Curriculum Suggestions
by Katrina Lybbert
Puppetry is just for fun! Sharing puppets with your toddler will create many happy memories and provide a way to develop personality and character. Puppets can be used as a teaching tool, for sharing stories, rhymes and songs. Puppets allow for individual expression, laughter, and joy!
In the lesson plans you will find suggestions for using the different puppets in different ways. You do not need to create all the kinds of puppets if you find a puppet your toddler wants to play with again and again. Choose puppets you are comfortable using and just have a good time together. Save a puppet to be used only at bedtime, mealtime or bathtime, etc., as part of your routines. Put the puppets away after using them, rather than leaving them in the play area, so they will stay exciting and fun for your toddler each time they appear.
