Toy Tuesday

Community Helpers Multicultural Puppets

Want to find a way to encourage role playing without the use of costumes?

These were given to me as a gift and my kiddos in the classroom have thoroughly loved them! The conversation created surrounding each different occupation is so fun to listen to. They are great for community helpers week, but they were also great for hospital talk. Even the police man brought up conversation about car accidents and going to the emergency room. Another situation in which children might have had interaction with police officers would be in the case of abuse or children in foster care.
 The puppets are easy to wash, although they may not be the best for a playroom in a hospital because they are cloth.

These are also great for classrooms or at home. 

 Do you use puppets for role playing?
