As you know, we are HUGE fans of Educational Insights and their wonderful products! We were recently given the opportunity to review The Sea Squad, which is a super cute set of stick puppets! These are ADORABLE and we LOVE them!
I broke out these adorable puppets on a stick and the girls went nuts! They LOVE roll playing, especially with puppets! These puppets are such a great way for kids to practice and participate in dramatic play. Many suggest that dramatic play is most effective in Pre-K-2 grade and I am a strong believer in dramatic play for the following reasons:
*It promotes problem solving and conflict resolution
*Helps develop social skills and language skills
*Increases creative thinking skills
*Teaches children how to share and take turns
*It's FUN and the work of childhood!
The Sea Squad includes four highly durable stick puppets:
Bob the Clam
Chomper the Shark
Flipper the Angler Fish
Dipper the Octopus
The girls had a blast with these puppets, especially Chomper who chased everyone all over the house! We LOVE these...can't you tell? I wish I had 100 sets to give away because I think that "play is the business of childhood!"
