Hand puppets have so many more benefits for little ones’ education, resourcefulness and all-round wellbeing than you might imagine – especially given that there are also many ‘make your own’ hand puppet kits on the market like those that we stock in the Puppets By Post online store.
The best ‘make your own’ kits that we have available right now
Dinosaurs have always been a subject of wonder to children, and you can maximise that wonder in their developing minds by investing in the Dinosaur Mask Kit presently on offer in our store. It includes four double-sided dinosaur masks, each with a full-colour mask on the front that can be flipped over to design and colour a new mask. It’s an ideal kit for small group activities and parties.
If, though, you think your little ones would appreciate a ‘make your own’ set based on a slightly cuter and cuddlier animal, you can’t beat the Little Pet Puppets kit. In fact, you can use this kit to create not only your own puppy and cat, but also two finger mice. Nor are any scissors or glue needed, which makes it the ultimate mess-free kit for children aged five years and above.
Along similar lines – and created with the same age category in mind – is the Owl Family Puppets set that allows you to rustle up a family of owl puppets. By that, we mean a mother owl, Agatha, who can move her mouth and flap her wings, and two younger owls, Barney and Hoot. These latter two are finger puppets, while Agatha is a hand puppet.
Or get your kid to take on the next level of puppet-making...
The above, though, are all relatively simple kits, which is why – when you have a boy or girl on your hands who is likely to be up for a bit more of a challenge – you might be interested in the Make Your Own Puppet Doll that we can also offer for a great price.
This particular kit consists of felt puppet bodies, eyes, thread, a plastic needle, Velcro accessories and instructions. In short, it’s got everything that a child aged five years or older needs to stitch together a lovely hand puppet of their very own. Adult supervision is recommended, however, not least because of the sharp needle.
