To speak of the contribution of puppets to the development of children, puppet games develop the imagination and creativity of children. While a puppet show is being performed, they learn a variety of words and think about where to use those words. Besides, puppets contribute the social development like listening, sharing, taking responsibility, contacting with other individuals… etc.. In short, these inanimate objects may turn into very useful education materials if they are used at the right time and used properly.

Activities with puppets will be very useful in many fields of development for the child such as; using the language fluently and properly, using the rules of the language and expressing himself confidently… etc.
