Single Socks Rock
Socks come in pairs because people have two feet. Socks are useful because they keep our feet warm and protected. It takes two matching socks to make a pair. Sometimes one sock gets lost. But what can you do with just one sock? Make a sock puppet, of course! Making a puppet is a great way to reuse a single sock.
Step 1: Things You'll Need
Collect the items from the materials list.
Little Hands Tip: Ask whose sock it is. What adventures has it had on someone's foot?
Step 2: Sock Talk
Slip your hand into the sock to form the puppet. Take a moment to have fun making your sock talk. But he can't see! Ask your child to give him some eyes.
Step 3: Drawing Eyes
On a piece of paper, help your child draw two eyes. You can also draw eyes directly on the puppet with a marker.
Step 4: Making Eyes
If you drew the eyes on a piece of paper, carefully cut out each eye.
Step 5: Glue It
Next, glue them both onto the sock puppet.
Step 6: Imagine It
Try on the new puppet and ask your child what it needs next. Maybe some funky hair?
Step 7: Hair Styling
To give your sock puppet some hair, cut strips of yarn or string.
Step 8: Hairdressing
Glue them to your sock puppet's head. Lookin' good!
Step 9: Making a Mouth
Cut a tongue shape from construction paper.
Step 10: Ready for Sock Talk
Glue the tongue in the sock puppet's mouth.
Step 11: Name It
Now, name your new socket puppet friend. Ask your child to interview the puppet. Answer your child's questions as the sock puppet. Take turns asking questions and playing with the sock puppet!
