Puppet time! Kids of all ages can make and play with these.
You Will Need
* An adult-sized sock
* A hot glue gun and glue
* Buttons or googly eyes
Put the sock on your hand with your fingers in the toe and your wrist at the heel of the sock.
Touch your fingertips to your thumbtip inside the sock and push the fabric between them to make a mouth.
Cut a circular piece of felt for the opening of the puppet's mouth and hot glue it into place.
Adding a tongue or teeth will give your sock puppet even more character.
Glue buttons or googly eyes onto the sock.
Cut yarn for hair and glue it onto the puppet's "head."
Add accessories to your puppet. These might include a bowtie, hair ribbon, earrings, an eye patch, or glasses.
Fact: The original Kermit the Frog puppet was made using creator Jim Henson's mother's coat and a few ping-pong balls.
