Right before Christmas CREATIVITY FOR KIDS sent us one of their craft kits for review. We were so excited when the Make Your Own Sock Puppet kit showed up on our front steps! Jace just couldn't wait until I opened it, he was so ready to get started on his.

We were pleasantly surprised when we opened it and saw how many different pieces came with this kit and how many options there are when making your own puppet! We were also so happy with the socks themselves too. They are made out of the softest material and they are a really good size for kids hands!

Jace went to town on his. The kit was very easy for him to do by himself. Most of the pieces have sticky tabs on them that you just peal off the paper and stick the item where you want it. The only help he needed was with the pom-poms as you have to use the plastic needle that comes with them and put the strings through to the inside and tie them which wasn't a big deal at all. Grady needed a little more assistance than Jace but that was expected with a 1 year old.

The final products turned out so good. They LOVE playing with their puppets and they have held up very well! What a great activity for any kid and to spark their imagination!

Now if that puppet with Grady's fooler would just take it away for good! Look at Grady looking at it so seriously ha ha! Like give me that back, that's for my mouth, not yours!!!

We saved the 3rd puppet for the little girl that I babysit for Kameryn. She had so much fun making her's very girly adding some pink hair, a purple mouth and some fun polka dots!
