Give the lonely sock that’s missing its pair a new life – as a cute Sock Puppet! Kids will love making their sock puppet character and then putting on a puppet show for even more fun!
- A sock
- Felt Material
- Googly eyes
- Craft pipe cleaners
- Pom poms
- Hot glue gun
Let’s get our sock puppet faces ready! Use your scissors to cut out a tongue shape from your felt material. Then glue your googly eyes to the pom pom balls to make those eyes POP!
How about a gorgeous head of hair for your sock puppet? Wrap your craft pipe cleaner around a finger to give it a spiral effect.
We’re ready to start turning our socks into real puppets! Glue your red felt material tongue to the part of the sock that will become the mouth.
Now bring your character to life! Glue your eyes, nose, and hair to the sock puppet. Get as creative as you like. Maybe your puppet has freckles, glasses, or three eyes instead of two.
Make sure the glue is completely dry before playing with your puppet.
Your sock puppets are ready to play with! Encourage imaginative play by asking your little ones to put on a puppet show with their new sock puppets.
