Puppetry is a great way to bring more quiet or shy children out of their shells, and to help everyone become more expressive. Children who are shy to speak or act in front of the class will often enthusiastically emote in the character of a puppet. A puppet helps a child to make friends easily too as it involves a lot of dialougues between child and their puppet buddy. It also helps a child in developing expressions of emotions through role plays and story telling involving the puppets.
Here, in our Story Space, we promote freedom of speech and freedom to express what a child feels or wants to convey through the puppets and their stories. Being in the education field for over 20 years, our Director, Mrs. Leena Dutta Baruah, has constantly endeavoured towards a playful methodology to teach children. And all these years, she has vouched for 'puppetry' as one of the most effective tools for building a sense of friendship, presentation skills and also great narrative instincts in children as they can use their puppet buddy as a part of the story they tell and interact better.
- Teach Children how to make easy and simple puppets of
- Help children use their creativity and imagination
- Through story telling, help children enact and narrate stories that are varied in concept and nature. Our puppet buddies also teach cleanliness, basic hygiene, importance of eating fruits and veggies, basic manners and much more. They also sing and dance, which enable children to explore their inclination towards performing arts. Also, if your child is into painting and drawing, there can be nothing better than making his/her own puppet buddy and painting them.
