7 Super Fun DIY Sock Puppets
I distinctly remember a phase of my younger years when puppets were the only thing I wanted to make. There were marionettes and regular pancake puppets, a foam ball head with arms and sticks à la The Muppets. And, of course, there were sock puppets. Unfortunately, they were made from really worn out 1980s socks.
It’s clear crafting has come a long way since 1985. You can even buy a pre-fab craft kit filled with fresh, clean, brightly colored socks and lots of crafty bits. But I think we’re all itching to make our own versions—to heck with pre-fab, I want to pick my materials myself. I also love finding crafts that you can get creative with after the craft is done—time for a puppet show!
