How To Make A Sock Puppet
The first step to a successful puppet show, is to have puppets. This will show you how to make effective puppets.
The first thing you will need to do is find a sock, and cut a hole in it for the mouth.
Next, Cut out 2 ovals, one out of the sock, and one out of a hard material, like cardboard or plastic. Glue the two ovals together. Then, after they dry, fold the ovals and sew them into the sock, making the mouth.
Now it's time to get started. You can do anything you want now. You could give it eyes, hair, teeth, clothes; the possiblities are endless. Make several different sock puppets to get ready for a show!
