We love dramatic play! Puppets, dolls and action figures are always a hit with my giggle goblins! There is absolutely nothing better than a puppet you create yourself to play with!

This project couldn't be simpler really and it is perfect for Dr. Seuss's birthday!

Dramatic play is so important for kids. It helps them to gain a basic understanding of social interactions and friendships. It helps them re-enact moments from their life and understand how they can cope with those situations. Most importantly, dramatic play brings a big world down to a child's size, making it easier to maneuver through emotions and life scenarios.

How do you encourage dramatic play in your children? I like to give mine access to dolls, action figures and puppets we create to let them work things out in a world of their own invention.
