Creative Play Challenge Day 4: When it’s Cold Outside, Put on a Show!
November 29, 2012 at 10:37 AM

If you're stuck indoors due to cold weather, here's one activity that's sure to keep your child occupied and entertained. (This is an art project PLUS an opportunity to play puppets all day long!) Start with a sock that's large enough to fit the child's hand comfortably. Let the child try on the puppet to see where the features should go. (The thumb will be the bottom jaw, and the other four fingers will be the rest of the face.) Then remove the sock and use markers, felt, googly eyes, fabric paint, and yarn to create the puppet. Let it dry and hold your very own puppet show!


What puppet character or story did your child create today?

If you missed yesterday's activity, you can find it here. If you haven't signed up for the Creative Play Every Day Challenge yet, you can do so here!

    This will be perfect for our basket of socks that are missing their match.

    we dont have any socks to spare but we did this with a paper bag and my daughter used it to eat up all her toys because we recently got the book Monday The Bullfrog and its a frog puppet and she loves to turn the page, announce what he is going to eat, and then stick her hand in his mouth so he can eat her too. Shes only 27 months but shes already started putting her hand inside him and telling the story herself, and she also is loving dressing up like all her favorite storybook characters and dancing or singing songs from her favorite shows and songs that she makes up herself

    We created a cat sock puppet and a dog puppet.  We put on a cat and dog puppet show.  They liked each other, though.  :)

    My son is calling every stuffed animal "Elmo" so I'll grab a red sock and make "Elmo" tonight with him. :)
