Rainy days make the perfect time to create puppets out of one-of-a-kind socks and mittens.
At my house, the matching sock and/or mitten can get lost or damaged or suffer from SSS (second sock syndrome) or I guess it could be SMS (for second mitten syndrome). All the same, these lovely cast offs are the perfect base for some rainy day fun.
Our puppet creations are pretty motley looking.
They were created from scrapes, pieces and odds & ends......you would be surprised what you can come up with. All you need is a darning needle, scissors and some fabric glue. Voila! Puppets!
And they don't look any better close-up. Right?
However unconventional looking these seem.......... they created hours of enjoyment to create and.... later starred in multiple puppet shows. Our puppets had many different voices, danced and sang. Punch and Judy had nothing on our motley crew.
It was hilarious!
