This craft is as old and simple as they come, but so much fun!!! We often forget about SOCK PUPPETS, though I’m sure most of us played with them as kids! L and I made these sock puppets last week to give away as party favors at our girls’ birthday party. We made two for each kid and they were a big hit!
- buttons, googlie eyes, sequins, felt, pompoms, bells…
- hot glue gun and glue
First, empty your sock drawer! Your kids will love this step, digging and swimming through your socks. Pick out a few pairs that you don’t wear…it’s definitely a bonus if they’re bright and colorful, but plain ol’ white socks work just as well.
Next, decorate! We made unicorns, dogs and million-eyed monsters this time around! Get creative and have fun! It’s nearly impossible to mess this one up!
A fun craft to follow this one, especially with older kids, is decorating some cardboard for a backdrop and putting on a sock puppet play! So much fun!!!
