Make a Sock Puppet | Centenary Nannies and Babysitters

Feeling creative? I loved making my own sock-puppet! It was a lot of fun and actually easy.  Although our first sock-puppet was quite conservative, you can get as creative as you like with them! Think googlies eyes, masses of different coloured hair and even a beard if you wanted!  Please see our sock-puppet recipe below:

What you need…

  1. Any old sock ( we used an old and long sports sock).   Make a sock puppet
  2. 2-3 buttons (any colour but try to have same size).
  3. Pen or Marker.
  4. Needle.
  5. needle thread (any colour).

How to make…

  1. Put the sock on your hand and close fingers over palm half way, turn hand towards you so you can see where the puppet mouth will be.
  2. Take your pen or marker and mark out where the puppets eyes will be. Place a dot there that will be covered by the buttons.
  3. Sew the eyes on using needle and thread. Tip: It doesn’t have to be perfect so don’t be too hard on yourself if like me you find that sewing buttons is not your specialty!
  4. Now it should be looking like a sock-puppet! You can also add hair using old string or cut up and sewn on strips of rags but that is entirely up to you!Make a sock puppet
