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

Posted by   + Show Post

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!

Sounds like a good idea. I haven't really made a home made sock puppet before.  Thanks for sharing. :)

We will have to try this later. My 3 year old is crawling around right now pretending to be a puppy.

My older kids have made sock puppets before and loved it. They usually color them with markers. We have two bins of craft stuff that they can use though

Thank you so much!  My girls are in school, but I can bet what they'd make.  My 5 year old would make a cat (her new obsession) and my 9 year old would do a giraffe (she collects them).  We'll have to go through Daddy's old socks and make some! :)
