How to make sock puppets

Being creative with your kids at home can be so rewarding and there is nothing quite like making something out of nothing. So grab a basket and let your little one collect all the bits you need to make your very own sock puppet!

Here is what you will need:

  • Odd long socks
  • Odd trainer or kids sock for the hat
  • Cotton wool
  • Elastic band
  • Glue
  • Buttons
  • Pom Poms or equivalent
  • Scissors

Step by step instructions

  1. Put an elastic band around the top of the long sock
  2. Stuff a ball of cotton wool inside beneath the elastic band to create the head
  3. Stuff your smaller sock with cotton wool and turn up the end to make it into a cute hat
  4. Place it on the long sock
  5. Glue pom poms in place for eyes
  6. Glue buttons on top of pom poms
  7. Glue pom pom on for nose
  8. Bring your sock puppet to life!

Zach loved making this puppet and wanted to make another one right away! The trick is to use as many resources that you already have without going out to buy more supplies!
