Do you always seem to lose socks when you do laundry? Grab one of those socks missing its pair and turn it into a sock puppet!

Materials Needed:  

    Sock
    Markers or felt
    Scissors
    Glue
    Optional Supplies (googly eyes, yarn, etc)

Does your washing machine like to eat socks? How often are you missing socks after washing clothes?

We can do that. Df has lots of socks that are missing the other pair.

We are always missing socks! I hate wearing matching socks though. Baylie don't really like puppets she would much rather play with a doll.

Cute idea!  I never know how many socks are missing because I just buy plain white socks of the same type so I don't have to worry about mismatched socks ever.  So the only way I know if I lost a sock is when I have a lonely sock.  I just wait one more cycle and that sock may find another mate :)

We actually did this last week. We made a sock puppet family. We used one of DH's for the "big" dad. one of mine for the mom and one of DDs for the baby!!

She even put them in her stroller and acted like they were dolls.

 Oooo, sock puppets! Haven't done that in years(when ds was younger), but now that the girls are about the age to enjoy it, I think we will have to make some and put on a "show"!
