I enjoy incorporating my puppet into everyday topics and activities. This approach allows the puppet to become a familiar presence, helping children build a connection with it and lowering their hesitation to participate in activities.

In this video, I’ll show you an example where I aimed to teach children new words—in this case, Dutch words. I’ve employed a song you might find familiar to aid in this learning process.

And now I am curios if there pops a song in your head, your puppet can sing together with children. If so, let me know 🙂
