Preschooler Sock Puppets

By request, my preschooler and I made sock puppets for an upcoming road trip.  I was pumped to make them since it was his own idea and something cool we could do together while the baby napped.  Here's our necessary items:  

1. collection of misfit socks


I used to knit, so spare yarn balls are abundant in the house.  Mostly, the kids like to play in this box.  I call this photo "Yarn Mess".

2.  yarn mess


3.  button collection


Pretty much as soon as we started, I realized his idea of making sock puppets included him getting to press all the fancy buttons on my machine.  My idea was simply for him to try manuevering a yarn needle.  Add a 4-yr. old attention span, and here's what you get....



Mom doing the sewing while he asks "are they done yet?" and slides down the pole in our basement like a fireman.





He loves them now that they're finished (note: he only had patience for 2 of the 4 socks from our misfit collection) and soon I came to understand that "playing sock puppets" means wearing the sock puppet on your hand and wrestling each other to the floor.  Boys!
