We have one month left of summer vacation here, ladies (not that I’m counting). I’ve loved getting to spend some extra time with my kidlets, but we are definitely grasping at straws for things to do around here that keep the kids entertained and cool. I mean, the average temperature in Phoenix right now is between 105-110 degrees and we don’t have a pool of our own. Yikes, right? When I spotted the Sock Friends Puppets from Darice, I knew that it was just the perfect thing to attempt next!
The Sock Friends Puppets line is comprised of more than 10 individual puppet kits, two different sets of three puppets, a puppet theatre curtain, and various extra pieces to create your own sock puppet. Each puppet kit comes complete with everything you and your child will need to recreate the puppet. I adore that I don’t have to purchase lots of different stuff to make a project happen; it’s already all there for you!
Here’s a video in case that’s more your speed. 😉
One of my favorite parts of the puppet kits? Not only is everything included and easy to figure out, but its all peel and stick too. You know what that means? No messy glue *and* no waiting for puppets to dry before digging into play time!
The only pitfall that I found is with those sticky squares. They are so dang sticky! Luke is the recommended age of six, but he was struggling to get the adhesive off of the paper by himself. Mom stepped in to save the day and all was right again.
Reagan was definitely younger than the recommended age at four years old, so I did most of the assembly while she pressed the pieces into place. Happy compromise!
They were absolutely thrilled with the outcome and couldn’t wait to put on a show for me. I love hearing the crazy stories that they’ve come up with for their puppets. Who knew that a flower and a shark could have such amazing adventures together?!
Another awesome part about the Sock Friends Puppets? There is a coordinating app! There is a free version and an upgraded version, available in the iTunes store. The puppets that you and your kidlets make together can come to life in the app.
Sock Friends Puppets are available at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Centers, Michaels, Meijer, and other independent retailers (selection may vary by store). If you’d like to follow Darice on their social media sites to keep up with all of their awesomeness, you can find them here:Pin It
