Creative Play Challenge Day 4: When it’s Cold Outside, Put on a Show!

If you're stuck indoors due to cold weather, here's one activity that's sure to keep your child occupied and entertained. (This is an art project PLUS an opportunity to play puppets all day long!) Start with a sock that's large enough to fit the child's hand comfortably. Let the child try on the puppet to see where the features should go. (The thumb will be the bottom jaw, and the other four fingers will be the rest of the face.) Then remove the sock and use markers, felt, googly eyes, fabric paint, and yarn to create the puppet. Let it dry and hold your very own puppet show!

We did sock puppets for Winter Solstice one year. That was awesome! DD loved that. She loves to put on shows & do crafts.

Not stuck inside today :( sure wish I was because work is horrible.  However I think think this will be fun to do for a bed time story kind of a thing, so I will do that this evening to have some fun.
