Make a puppet out of old socks!  Kids will have fun making this craft, you can provide a variety of craft supplies for them to design their own puppet, like this horse sock puppet.



Supplies for a Horse Sock Puppet Craft:

  • Old Sock
  • Yarn
  • Pom Poms
  • Felt
  • Fabric Markers
  • About a 3 inch by 6 inch scrap piece of cardboard
  • Decorative items, like flowers, bows, fabric...

    Directions to make a Horse Sock Puppet:

      • To make the main, take the cardboard and start wrapping the yarn around it.
      • After you've wrapped the yarn to the to the length and fulness you want the horse's main to be, glue along one edge to hold all of the yarn strands together, let dry.


    • On the other cut the yarn across the edge, this will make the mane for your horse.  You will glue the glued side of the mane to the sock.


    • Now you can get creative and glue the rest of the features of the horse sock puppet on, like Pom Poms for the eyes, felt circle for the nose, a bow tie made out of paper, and fabric markers (or a permanent marker) to make the mouth.
