Hand Puppets

Hand puppets are a great way for preschoolers to access imagination and creative thinking in an open-ended play setting. Cate & Levi makes the Cadillac of hand puppets. They are beautifully handcrafted out of reclaimed wool with colors and textures that are individually selected, making them environmentally responsible and one-of-a-kind. Their line of people puppets are not only adorable, but tie-in the themes of neighborhood and community that are crucial to kindergarten readiness. Choose the fireman or the nurse, or get more fanciful with alien, mermaid, and cowboy puppets! (Cate & Levi, $30)
