Sock Puppet Theatre Day

Summer holidays can be long and one might run out of ideas for fun activities. Help the kids to make puppets and a stage and let them put on a play!

You will need:

• Socks
• Paper bags
• Coloured paper
• Sosatie stick
• Box
• Broom
• Linen

Here are some very nice ideas for puppets:

• Use those single socks to make sock puppets – just add felt tongues and eyes.
• Make paper bag puppets and decorate with coloured paper.
• For a small stage, stick puppets are ideal: Draw figures on paper, cut out and glue to a sosatie stick.

The stage can be made from an old box or be as simple as a broom with a linen sheet draped over it between two couches.
