Sock puppets are a fun way to get some additional use from old socks or those without mates. You can make a sock puppet even if you do not know how to sew. Once you make a sock puppet, you and your children can use it to sing songs like "Mary Had a Little Lamb" or "Ba Ba Black Sheep." You can also use your sock sheep puppet to tell funny stories or act out a play.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Push your hand into the toe of the sock and tuck the toe of the sock into your hand to make a mouth. Use the pencil to lightly mark where you want the eyes, nose and tongue to be.

  2. 2

    Hot glue the googly eyes in place or sew buttons on if you are using them instead.

  3. 3

    Cut a nose, tongue and ears from your felt and glue them to the sock puppet in the places you marked.

  4. 4

    Draw a mouth on your sheep with the permanent marker. You can draw in both the upper and lower lips based on where your hand is in the puppet.

  5. 5

    Hot glue yarn or wool on the sheep for hair. Use as much hair as you want until the sheep looks right to you.

  6. 6

    Hot glue three or four cotton balls down near the cuff of the sock to represent the sheep's tail.

Tips and warnings

  • Put your hand into the sock and open and close your hand to make the sheep look like it is talking.
  • Keep the hot glue gun away from children and do not touch the tip of the gun since it is very hot.
