Make it Monday – Scarecrow puppet

We have really been digging the puppet box at the library lately.  Puppets are pretty expensive though, and you really need more than one, so we don’t have any at home.  There is a great website with many ideas for different paper bag puppets.  This is one of my favorites and is appropriate for the season.  Using puppets can make practicing speech seem safer to the child that is still learning to speak.  It can make talking about difficult topics easier.  Role-playing upcoming social situations can help a child feel more prepared socially and can help them to behave appropriately.  Check out this site and see the other great ideas they have for puppets (many complete with printable patterns).  (click on the scarecrow to go to the website)
