Play Therapy Puppets and Play Therapy Theater: The School of Fish

My play therapy puppet theater has an underwater theme. I am fascinated with "all things" ocean. I've loved the ocean and sea animals since I was a little kid. So I wanted my play therapy puppet theater to reflect my childhood. I grew up with the Little Mermaid movie and its still one of my favorites. I love the thought of another world under the sea and "talking fish" that take on human-like qualities.

I made my play therapy puppet theater out of a cardboard box lid and I created my characters out of colored-construction paper. It has the typical elements of sea-life; turtles,shells, and little fish. I also added some waves to the bottom and blue yarn on each side to simulate movement.

I only have two characters in the play therapy puppet theater. They are Omar "the octopus" and Clark "the clown fish". They are best friends and they don't quite fit in with the "school" of fish. Clark lacks confidence and wants to blend in,while Omar LOVES being different. Omar encourages Clark to embrace being different and others would notice around him. I created these characters and I thought that it could teach a great lesson about "being yourself". I think kids should be thought self-confidence and individuality at a young age.
