When we chose to empathize with somebody, we make a vulnerable choice, because we have to connect with something in ourselves that knows that feeling. When we choose to empathize with the children we work with, we choose to help them communicate the feelings they are feeling but cannot name.
Puppets can help us by supporting our children in expressing feelings that otherwise might keep dormant or suppress. Puppets can put a smile on a child’s face. Puppets help adults become silly, be a child again, and explore the unknown. Making a puppet can help adults de-stress and become creative.
Join me in this interactive workshop and learn more about empathy and puppets. In this workshop you will learn how to use puppets to help children express how they feel. You will learn to make a cone puppet, and you will learn the benefits of using puppets in your daily interaction with children.
