How can I make some simple puppets with my kids?

Puppets are easy to create using basic items you can usually find around your house. Get some use out of old socks that no one can wear anymore or that have lost the mate to a matching pair. Of course make sure you wash them first before you begin the puppet project. You can use any colour sock to make hand puppets, but white ones work the best. It is easier to see the faces you and the kids create on the sock puppets on the white fabric. You can use permanent markers to draw simple faces. The best way to get a real idea of where the face will be on your hand is to actually put the sock over your hand then move your fingers together to see the facial movement. Then draw the face on the socks. Make sure you detail the mouth area some too. You can draw a tongue or the inside of the mouth on the part towards your palm that looks like the inside of the mouth of the puppet. For hair use anything from yarn to strips of fabric or ne really creative and make hair out of rubber bands or foil, or shredded paper. Glue your choice of puppet hair in place using simple white craft glue If you want eyes that stand out better, buy googly eyes, beads, jewels or buttons from the craft or fabric store. Have fun making the creations. Make sure you let everything dry in place before you start playing with your simple sock puppets or it will all fall off. Then put on a puppet show together or enjoy some pretend play time using funny voices for the puppets. They are really fun to make. The kids will enjoy creating them. Mama Nono
