Sock Puppet PDF FACEBOOK SHARE ICON.

Make your own sock puppet.

What You Need:

• An old pair of socks
• Washable markers

What To Do:

1. Slip a sock onto your hand and use markers to draw eyes near the toe end. Do the same with the other sock.
2. Let your child name the puppets.
3. Show your child how to put the sock on her hand and move he thumb and other fingers to make the puppet “talk”.
4. Put on your puppet and start up a conversation between the two puppets.
5. Have the puppets do other activities like pick up objects, tickle one another, or pinch little noses!

Variation:
1. Draw faces on your child’s booties. Describe the expressions on the booties. For example, “That’s a very friendly face. See the big smile on the face?”
2. Encourage her to pat and touch the faces or to wiggle her toes while she’s wearing the booties to see how the faces change.
