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!

well my kid is an adult now and way beyond this.But we used to make our own puppets,her favorite color used to be green,so we made lots of lizards and frogs.I let her use crayons to color on socks to make eyes,or spots or scales.

Oh that sounds like fun! But DS (21m) won't do it. He is all over the place, lol. He's too busy doing other stuff to sit still long enough to do something like this. but I hope he will be later on in life. I loved doing stuff like this when I was a kid!
