The Very Best Ideas for Making Sock Puppets


Making Sock Puppets Couldn't Get any Easier!

Get a head start on making sock puppets with three ideas from easy-child-crafts.com. Start off with the basics....socks! Add some yarn, a couple of buttons and you're on your way to creating great ideas for puppets.

First things first....decide on the puppet character you want to create. Dog, cat.....we went with a Kermit the Frog! Next thing you know, we were making sock people, and finally, Maya decided to create a colorful caterpillar! Most of the supplies were found laying around our house....$ investment = zero. Creativity....priceless.

Materials

  • A printer--our template comes in pdf form
  • Construction paper, white printer paper or foam sheets (which is what we used to decorate our puppets)
  • Pieces of felt or material
  • Scissors
  • glue stick, white glue or a glue gun (adult supervision required)
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils (your choice)
  • *For the Caterpillar--2 wiggle eyes and a pipe cleaner for the antennae

    Instructions

    Print out the template.

    Cut out the template pieces.

    Place the template on the material of your choice (construction paper, foam sheets, felt, etc.) and cut out.

    Decorate the template pieces to your liking using either crayons, colored pencils, or markers . (Here's your chance to make this craft your own!)

    Use our pictures as reference as to the placement of the body parts on the sock.

    That's it....let the glue dry before you start playing and performing with your puppets!

    We'd love to see what you made. Maybe you "tweaked" our patterns or came up with some AMAZING ideas of your own!
