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!

this is already on the agenda! she has been wanting to make a snowman puppet out of socks. there are some eawsy tutorials online for this.


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

 My son loves sock puppets. We'll find some old socks and make one today.

My son is calling every stuffed animal "Elmo" so I'll grab a red sock and make "Elmo" tonight with him. :)

We haven't made any homemade puppets but we do have a lot of puppets and we make up all kinds of stories with them.
