A summary
Puppets can be powerful allies in learning outdoors. They are playful, exciting and magical. They can support the development of language, imagination, social learning and creative play. They can be used to learn about the natural world and connect creatively with it. First we will explore the benefits of puppets and some simple ways they can be introuduced into sessions. There will then be a practical session of making, with a focus on using wool and wet and needle felt methods.
