pssst. The secret to sock puppets is there is no secret. Do whatever you want. Ribbons make great eyes, mouth, or eyebrows. Furry fabric makes for an excellent mohawk. Try taking a sharpie to a white sock, or glow in the dark paint to a black sock. You can use all types of socks too! Wool socks with holes, short colorful socks, super long soccer socks, or even tights! Don't let the sock confine you. Think beyond keeping your toes warm!
