Emergency Sock Puppet!

By

We needed some entertainment and we needed it fast! We’d been in the car too long and our toddler Peter had just about had it! At home Peter and I have been reading a great book called Puppets of All Kinds. Here in the car I was holding a pair of his socks. Eureka! The sock quickly transformed into a sock puppet. Peter was quite amused. My puppetry skills improve the more I fiddled with the position of the sock. Then, it occurred to me how much better it would be with eyes. I didn’t have any traditional crafting materials handy, but, I was wearing stud earrings. I pinched the sock at the heel and attached the earrings. It worked great, what an improvement! I wonder what we could find in your purse or bag to make this puppet totally legit? Let me know your ideas.

    Dear April,

    I have some AirPods in my purse. I think they would make very cute ears on that puppet. And since the puppet doesn’t have a brain yet, the risk of neurological disease would be minimal.

    You are a fun mom!
