3 Little Pigs Finger Puppets
Each set of eight 3 Little Pigs Finger Puppets consists of:
- 3 Little Pigs
- 3 Houses
- the Big Bad Wolf
- and because they lived with their mother, there is a Mummy Pig as well!
Each character has little hands and feet and measures approx 4.5 x 4.5 x 7cm (L x W x H).
The detail is excellent, with them being made of plush material, the head is stuffed, and has embroidered features and little beads for their eyes.
There is also a little piece of elastic inside to hold the puppet securely on their fingers.
The first little piggy makes a house of sticks, the second little piggy makes a house of straw, and the last little piggy makes a house of bricks.
And each time the Big Bad Wolf says,
“”Little pig, little pig, let me come in.”
“No, no, not by the hair on my chinny chin chin.”
“Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your house in.”
COMMUNICATION AND SOCIAL SKILLS
Hand & Finger Puppets are an ideal springboard for developing speaking and listening skills.
Children often communicate more easily with puppets, giving them confidence to express their ideas and feelings
Shy children can become acquainted with others through the roles they take on
Children are free to try on new personalities and take them off again, with a puppet on their hand, broadening their own in the process.
Scary animal hand and finger puppets like lions and sharks or shy ones such as a tortoise can help children master uncomfortable feelings
Puppet play provides an opportunity to gain some control over their world by working out fears and frustrations.
Hand and Finger Puppet play helps young children develop creative skills by forcing them to use their imaginations. They make up the roles, the rules, the situations and the solutions.
It is through imaginative play that children come to understand the differences between fantasy and
The real world becomes more real to children who have opportunities to pretend.
