Find out how to help children manage their feelings and behaviours using tissue play and puppetry

This beautiful, creative teaching pack from Earlyarts is designed to help educators improve children’s cognitive, physical, social and emotional development. It encourages practitioners to scaffold children’s interests, opening up a world of possibilities for the imagination as well as providing starting points for shared thinking and discussion across all ares of the Early Years Foundation Stage.

Using activities and objects that are familiar to young children, such as toys, stories and miniature versions of everyday things, we allow children to re-create their own worlds, working out social, emotional and identity issues and developing confident and resilient attitudes and skills which are essential for life.

Ideal for children whose first language is not English, or for whom expressing their thoughts and ideas through words presents a huge barrier, this fun teaching pack hugely encourages children’s speaking and listening skills. It can have a massive impact on all areas of learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and helps build a keen self-awareness and awareness of others.
