Podcasts Encouraging Children to Play with Words

From puns to personification, young readers tuning in to the Buttons & Figs podcasts will develop a love of all the amazing things they can do with words. Wordplay helps children make sense of the world by allowing them the freedom to play with meaning, sounds, and ideas. It is a way to inspire children to think critically and express creatively. Each Buttons & Figs podcast features some form of wordplay inspired by a book, song, or poem. Occasionally nonsense artists share writing and wordplay advice for children, but mainly listeners will hear original children’s wordplay writing and be invited to participate in a wordplay recording challenge. Children can listen to the podcasts for free on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, or SoundCloud.
