I've been wanting to do these for a long time and was glad I finally managed to get out of the procrastination. I love that the materials are readily available in our house - old socks, felt, googly eyes, pom poms and yarn, and all I had to do was to hunt for them in the drawers or storage boxes. Yup, I find it an achievement that I actually managed to locate all of them.
Anyway, before we even got down to doing the craft, I could already foresee just how much the girls were gonna love these and all the fun and imaginative things they could do. I was just happy that I was right and they were so, so ecstatic with the finished product. What exactly did we do in this week's Creativity 521? Well, we made our own DIY Animal Sock Puppets.
1) Old socks
3) Pom poms
4) Googly eyes
5) Felt fabric in assorted colours
7) Hot glue
Next, we used yarn to make the whiskers! Ariel was thrilled that she could do this entirely on her own - find the end of the yarn, pull it out, cut, and repeat!
Tadah, how do you like our final sock puppets? The girls were really, really happy with how they turned out and couldn't wait to put on their first puppet show!
Till the next Creativity 521! It's the last week of school before we break for the June holidays! Woohoo!
