Dinosaur Sock Puppet Craft

Roooaaarrr! Here comes Sock-A-Saurus-Rex! This dinosaur sock puppet was a huge hit with our daughter. It was a great dinosaur craft to make and a fantastic toy to play with when we were done! Our dinosaur sock puppet, in addition to being silly and fun, was a great way to teach simple lessons about dinosaurs to our daughter. This sock puppet is a simple preschool craft that your children are sure to love!

What you'll need:

  • Sock: clean and fun colors preferred
  • 2 googly eyes
  • Red and black felt
  • Felt that matches your sock (whatever color you'd like!)
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Drinking glass
How to make your dinosaur sock puppet craft:
  • Put the sock on your hand or your child's hand. Wiggle the sock around a bit so that your thumb is able to make a good mouth for your puppet.
  • Cut a triangular piece of red felt for the inside of the mouth and glue it in place.
  • Glue on two googly eyes on the sock so they sit on top of your hand.
  • Cut two small circles out of black felt and glue towards the front of your fingers to make a dino nose.
  • Cut triangles out of felt to make the spikes on the back of your puppet. You will need two triangles for one spike.
  • Glue the tops of the two triangles together, leaving the bottom part open. This will allow you to glue the spike onto the sock and still have it stand up.
  • Run a generous amount of glue where you'd like the spike to go, spread the bottom of your spike open a little bit and press it into place. Repeat for as many spikes as you'd like (we were able to fit 3 on an adult sized sock).
  • Cut a little bit off the open end of your sock to make arms for your puppet. Shape the extra bit of sock into a t-rex like arm and glue one arm on each side.
  • Slip the sock puppet over a drinking glass to allow the glue to dry.
