My 6 year old had to design a puppet for career day. He wants to be a veterinarian, so he and his 12 year old brother came up with the sock puppet above. They used markers, black electrical tape, material and an old sock from my rag bucket.
This is his second sock puppet that he has made for class. For the first one, he used a long tube sock and colored it pink with a bright pink highlighter. See what you and your child can create from items at your house. Have fun with it!
