Today, I am excited to share with you a groundbreaking toolkit that has the potential to revolutionize the way we connect and engage with children: The Puppet Power Pack.

At the heart of every educator and parent lies the desire to reach out and connect with children on a deeper level, isn’t it? Yet, finding innovative tools that can bridge the gap between learning and play can be challenging. A puppet is such an innovative and playful tool, but many of us don’t have a clue how to use it properly in the educational setting. We often copy resources that we know, like Sesame street, puppetshows or even Mr. Rogers.

All great recourses, but made for a situation that’s not the same as yours. When you use a puppet for the children at home, in your group or practice, then you are dealing with children who are present live, responding to your puppet, and not always in the way you had envisioned. You need a different approach to the puppet, one that is suitable for your situation.

This is where the Puppet Power Pack comes into play, offering a unique blend of resources designed to inspire and equip you with the skills to incorporate hand puppets into your educational toolkit.

The Puppet Power Pack is not just a collection of resources; it’s a gateway to a world of engagement, laughter, and learning with a puppet that makes a difference in the leading role. In the Puppet Power Pack I give you the insights that I would have wanted to have when I first stepped into my group with a puppet.

I give you my insights in the masterclass “hand puppet essentials”, providing a clear perspective on utilizing hand puppets as a professional tool to engage more intimately with children. Additionally, I give you access to my book “the hand puppet as an educational tool” in which you delve into the ins and outs of the hand puppet as an educational tool, offering insights and strategies for incorporating this method into your teaching or parenting approach.

But that’s not all. The toolkit also comes with a workbook featuring 25 puppets you can create yourself, adding a personal touch to your educational interactions. The sock puppet masterclass further demystifies the process of creating a simple, yet effective, puppet without the need for cutting into the sock, ensuring a seamless and enjoyable crafting experience.

Moreover, the workbook on simple sentences and activities is designed to kickstart your journey with hand puppets for language stimulation, providing practical tools to enhance communication and engagement. The compilation of activities and examples from personal experiences offers a treasure trove of ideas to explore and adapt to your unique educational setting.

The value of hand puppets in education cannot be overstated, and the Puppet Power Pack is here to guide you through unlocking this potential. Whether you’re looking to foster a deeper connection, enhance language skills, or simply inject more fun into your educational endeavors, this toolkit is a great start on this transformative journey. You can get access to all the resources for just $7,-
