In order to make sock puppets, a few supplies should be gathered. Ribbed socks, cardboard, plastic craft eyes, adhesive, feather boas, pom-poms, puffy paint and any other embellishments will be used to create the puppets. The craft eyes should be glued near the toe of the sock and should be left to dry before continuing the rest of the puppet. Puffy paint can be used to create eyelashes, eyebrows, a nose and a mouth on the puppet. A nose can also be created using a pom-pom. If desired, a feather boa can be added to the puppet in the area of the head, where the toe of the sock is.
There is no limit to the number of embellishments that can be added to these puppets. Children and adults can search through craft supplies to find anything to add to the puppets. Cardboard can be placed inside of the puppet to make it stand upright when it is not being used on the hand.Learn more about Crafts for Kids
