Papoose Storytelling Puppet Set: The Hungry Caterpillar

Papoose

Regular price $48.95 Bundle & Save

Developmental Benefits: Fine Motor Skills, Creative & Imaginative Thinking, Language  

We are seriously impressed with this engaging 18-piece felt puppet storytelling set by Papoose! It includes a large caterpillar hand puppet, butterfly hand puppet plus 16 little yummy felt goodies for the caterpillar to eat. The caterpillar even has an ingenious slit in his mouth so he can make all that food disappear, plus a sweet little exterior pocket on his tummy for stashing some food when he's on the go!

A beautiful toy to use together, this handmade puppet set will capture your little one's imagination and attention during storytime, and help strengthen their language skills. Hours of fun, creative play to be had here.


*Orders containing a combination of pre-order and in-stock items will be shipped when all pre-order items have arrived. See full shipping info below.

    Benefits for baby

    Hand puppets are a natural and fun extension of the pretend play that young children engage in so readily. They help promote communication and social skills, as puppets can praise, be role models or explain how things are done. Puppets promote fine motor skills and creative, imaginative thinking. They are an awesome open-ended toy, so let your bubba take the lead and you’ll be amazed by where their imagination will take you!

    Sample Activity

    Age: 8 months +

    Benefits: Memory Recall, Object Permanence

    Activity: Put the caterpillar puppet on your hand and make a big, dramatic show of it eating each of the included felted food items one by one, and getting progressively more full. Then, in your role as "you", pretend to be shocked that all the food is gone! Search for the missing food — "Who could have eaten it?" — and invite your little one to help you find it. Invite your baby to feed the caterpillar with the included food pieces, or other bits and pieces around them. My babies find it hilarious when the caterpillar dramatically spits out "yucky" food! 

    For older babies, 12 months plus, you could talk about the quality of the different felted foods in the caterpillar's diet. Which ones are healthy for a baby? Which ones are healthy for a caterpillar? Extend the activity by sorting the food into categories: fruit, vegetables, junk food, etc.
