Learning at home ideas: Puppetry with Infants and Toddlers

Suitable for: Infant, Toddler
You Will Need:

Colorful puppets, either purchased or homemade (make sure they don't have small pieces that might come off and create a choking hazard).

Directions:

Look into the eyes of your baby, hold the puppet on your hand and have the puppet softly touch and sing or talk with your baby. Wait for your child to make sounds or words back and then continue the "conversation."

Tip:

Use the puppet as a fun way to encourage language.
