Puppets are a great way to refocus a small child. Let the puppet whisper in your ear some improvements for you child's playing and she won't think you as a parent or teacher are being critical. You can also use the finger puppets on the end of the bow on stringed instruments Give your child his favorite character or animal that he can use when he's practicing happily. There are puppets for the different holidays such as Halloween, Christmas, and Easter. These puppets are a great way to make practicing fun again!
