Post-it Puppets

Posted by: Rhonda May 19, 2020

When I first began teaching preschool, my mentor impressed on me the importance of having some “up-your-sleeve-tricks” for those inevitable moments where nothing else seems to work. For example, if a child is not responding to your voice or is too distracted to pay attention, pull out a puppet to bridge the communication gap. It works like magic to capture their attention.

You can create a finger puppet almost instantly using a Post-it note. A couple of folds, two scissor snips, and a few details with a pen are all it takes.
