Make a simple sock puppet

1 Choose an old sock – either child size or adult but preferably plain.

2 Sew on button eyes

3 Add fabric ears and nose – felt if you have it. You could also use card or paper.

4 Add more details as appropriate eg for a cat you might add whiskers or for a snake you might add a tongue

5 Make a puppet to represent one of the characters in a story. If you make more than one, you and your child could have one puppet each ad they could have a conversation.

We suggest using a sock puppet for example in our activity page for the book Max the Brave by Ed Vere see here.
