Who doesn’t have a matchless sock hanging around the laundry pile? Sock puppets are easy to make and a ton of fun to play with this is a great way to inspire creativity and use those lone socks!
What you’ll need to make a sock puppet:
- A sock – the more colorful the better!
- Stuffing – or a few cotton balls
What we did was stuff the stuffing into the heel of the sock to create some “puppet ears”.
For the eyes we cut our circles of felt, then used the button in the center to mimic the “pupil”. My kids like how googley the eyes seem. I am a bit concerned that my one year old might chew on the buttons though. If you have little ones, just use an alternate color of felt to make the eye “center”.
To make the hair we wrapped the yarn around our fingers and then attached one side of the loops to the puppet, right behind the ears.
and viola! You’re done! Ours took under 15 min to make. Hopefully you’ll enjoy them for weeks as my kids have! Don’t want to make a silly puppet? Evgie inspired this little sock, they have quite a few adorable puppets!
