I'm pretty sure you have all made a sock-puppet at some point in your life. Anyway, I just thought I'd share a little sock-puppet DIY for those of you who may have missed out on this epic life experience. I made these with Warren's niece who I am babysitting for a while.
Things you will need to make a sock Puppet -
- One of Warren's socks (just kidding, use your own sock).
- Glue - make sure it is a fabric glue
- Felt in various colours - I used blue, black and pink
Cut out eyes on the blue felt. Older kids can cut them out on their own. In this case I drew a paper eye and let Little Miss trace around it and then I cut it.
Cut out smaller black circles for the eyes - (pupils yo!) and glue them into the centre of the eye.
(please note the bling)
Use your fabric glue to stick the eyes onto the sock at the toe end
If you are more awesome than me, you will have found wool to use for hair. If you are not awesome and could not find wool - you will have to use paper. We decided on a hair colour (pink) and then we coloured a piece of A4 paper with pink strips, which I cut up to use as hair.
Glue the hair strips onto the sock head- right behind the eyes.
If you want to can curl the paper up - using one side of a pair of scissors - like you would if you were curling ribbon. You can also cut out a tongue shape to glue to the underside of the puppet.
Host a puppet show.
