Puppet is an object that can not be separated from young children and puppets are one of the items that must be owned by kids. Puppets have a cute shape. Dolls also have colors that can attract the attention of children. To make the children become creative, we can invite them to make dolls. Materials that can be used to make doll crafts include flannel cloth, paper, socks, etc.
We can make simple cute dolls using paper. The craft of paper is suitable for elementary school children because it is very simple and very easy to make. Teaching them to make simple dolls from used paper will help them in their psychological development. Paper dolls help to increase children’s creativity in playing role play. One of the forms of paper craft that can be made is in the form of insects. Colorful cute insects will make your child happy in making and playing with it.
Another material that can be made into dolls is socks. Making hand puppets with socks is a classic and fun way. You do not need to have special expertise in making dolls from this sock material, because it’s not difficult and it is very simple. Even from a pair of used socks, you can make penguins, rabbits, snowman dolls and even hand puppets. Dolls can help develop children’s imaginative and improvised stories in a safe way and also help them to explore a variety of emotions and scenarios. Children don’t even realize that they are doing all that learning.
Dolls are the best way for children to get ingenious and creative characters! Storytelling is a big part of childhood and will be very fun and easy with dolls. That is why we have to provide dolls for them and it will be more fun if we participate in making these dolls.
