Do your children love to make and play with puppets? Marionette play is a real favourite in my house. I love it because it encourages so much imaginary play and help young children improve communication skills. It’s even more interesting if kids make themselves some puppets and a theatre. Making puppets is an easy craft activity that gets kids thinking creatively!

Check out these 5 creative puppet projects (marionettes and theatres) and have fun playing with your little ones!
