Home made sock puppets

I have a washing machine that manages to produce only one sock out of a pair each time I do the laundry.  So what do you do with those odd socks that mount up?

Make sock puppets for story telling and using for singing songs and rhymes as well as creative and imaginative play.

For these ones i used:

  • Odd socks (these particular socks are fluffy so great for texture, colour and pattern)
  • Odd bits of felt (used for the ears, eyes and tongue)
  • Pieces of left over ribbon from various projects used for the hair
  • Needle and threads
You can get the children involved to make these.  You don't have to sew them.  Use some fabric glue instead.  The opportunities are endless!
