5 Senses For Kids Puppets [Free Printables]

There’s nothing like a puppet to help a child learn about their five senses!

These fun 5 senses for kids puppets each represent one of the senses – mouth, ear, nose, eye, and hand. But these puppets are more than just cute and fun – they’re also educational.

By playing with these puppets, kids can learn all about how we use our five senses.

The mouth puppet is perfect for teaching kids about taste and how we eat. The ear puppet is great for helping kids understand how we hear.

The nose puppet is perfect for exploring how we smell. The eye puppet is ideal for helping kids understand how we see.

And the hand puppet is perfect for helping kids understand how we touch.

By playing with these puppets, kids will not only have a lot of fun, but they’ll also learn all about their five senses!

We love these five senses puppets because they’re a great way for kids to not only learn about each of the senses but also to get them thinking critically and creatively!

When your kids start telling stories about their senses, they’ll have to figure out how each of their body parts works and takes in information that helps them connect all the ideas in their mind.

They’ll also have to work on sequencing and vocabulary to tell the story.

On top of that, they’ll also have to use their creativity to come up with new stories each time.

If your kids or students are having a hard time thinking of stories, have them retell their favorite book and use the 5 senses puppets whenever there’s a part of the story that uses a sense.

After they’ve heard an example and tried out a familiar story, they may be more likely to branch out and create unique stories of their own!
