An old sock, a marker pen or button, needle wool and cotton.


Shove your hand inside a sock and form a mouth by pushing the sock in between your fingers and thumb. With a felt pen, lightly mark where you think the eyes, nose and other features should be. Remove your hand and make the facial features by colouring them in with felt pens. Alternatively you may sew on things like a button for the nose, some strips of material for a tongue and ears. Some wool makes good hair and then pass wool through the same point several times for the eyes.

Hints: We have made a fork tongued snake but you can make all sorts of different animals and people.
