Five Simple and Creative Ways to Integrate Puppetry into Parenting

Have you ever wondered how to inject a daily dose of laughter and creative play into parenting? Welcome to the magical world of Pubbets! We firmly believe in the transformative power of puppetry, taking the seemingly mundane routines and spinning them into unforgettable adventures.

Let's dive into the top five ways puppets can enrich your parenting experience and put a wide smile on your little one's face!

1. Storytime Spectacular

Why simply read a story when you can bring it to life? With one of our high-quality hand puppets, you can animate the characters from your child's favourite book. For instance, if you're reading "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," let the puppet mimic the caterpillar's actions and 'eat' through the pages. It's an interactive and engaging way to fuel their imagination.

2. Road Trip Rendezvous

Bring excitement to those long drives by bringing along one of our hand puppets. Transform the puppet into a fun character, a narrator of tales, or the referee in a car game. For example, the puppet could announce, "Next up, I spy with my little eye, something beginning with 'T'!" Each rest stop can be a new scene in your puppet's adventures, keeping the suspense and fun alive for your little ones throughout the journey.

3. The Homework Helper

Turn homework time into a fun, stress-free activity with our puppets playing the tutor's role. When your child is practicing multiplication, the puppet could pose the questions.

For example, "What's 5 times 3? No peeking at your textbook! Let's see if you can beat me in this numbers game!" It's a playful way to reinforce lessons and helps children retain information better.


4. The Puppet Show

Children love to perform and play pretend. Why not transform a corner of your living room into a stage? A puppet show encourages creativity, storytelling, and even helps build confidence as they perform for the family.

Children have an inherent knack for imaginative play and performance. With a home stage and a couple of our hand puppets, your child can transport the entire family into a fairytale world.

For instance, they could conduct a riveting performance of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". Watch as they masterfully manipulate Goldilocks, altering their voice to depict the different moods and moments of the story. The play can take on a whole new level of fun, interactive storytelling that engages and delights the entire family.

5. The Pubbets Lab

Unleash your child's inner Picasso with an exciting visit to our Pubbets Lab. This creative space gives them the freedom to design their puppet masterpiece, right down to the finest detail.

Whether they envision a simple farmer friend, donning overalls and sneakers, or a serene fairytale puppet with flowing hair and a red hood, the options are boundless.

They get to name their creation, giving birth to characters such as 'Farmer Joe' or 'Ruby Riding Hood.' It's a wonderful opportunity to promote creativity while also fostering a sense of ownership and deeper connection with their new puppet friend.

With these simple and creative ways, puppetry can truly be a game-changer in your parenting. So, shop puppets online at and experience the magic firsthand!
