Make Your Own Ladybug Play Therapy Puppet
This adorable little ladybug play therapy puppet is an excellent example of how to make your own play therapy puppets.
My play therapy students made this puppet out of styrofoam, pom pom balls, glitter, glue, pipe cleaners, and wiggly eyes.
The ladybug is then placed on a stick for the "play therapy puppet effect."
Children love to see the bright and colorful homemade puppets for play therapy. It does not take that much time, money, or effort to be a creative counselor and make your own play therapy puppets.
