Sock Puppets

We made sock puppets yesterday.  I was not as prepared as I hoped, but they turned out ok.  The main reason Isaac was excited about the project was that it meant we could get out the new hot glue gun (or as he calls it "Mommy super glue").  Of course, he didn't get to use it, but he was excited about seeing how it worked since we just bought it last week.

I quickly grabbed some old socks -- including one that apparently had walked through paint drips during our remodel -- plus some felt, glue, markers, googly eyes, etc.

We tried on the sock to figure out where the "mouth" would be and marked where eyes should be. 

We added googly eyes, felt ears, noses, and tongues.  

We had fun trying on the puppets and playing while we put them together.  All the playing though meant we kept the decorating pretty simple.  Here's our puppets and Isaac playing :)

Next time, I think I might try to make puppets out of a few winter gloves that are missing their mate -- I think it would be fun to add faces, hair, etc to each finger.
