Tusky the Elephant Sock Puppet
Kids will love playing the part of the swaggering elephant.
1. Cut floppy ears and a trunk from a gray sock. Sew the trunk together, stuff it with batting, and insert a pipe cleaner.
2. Sew the trunk to the toe of the matching sock and curve it upward. Make the tusks from white felt and batting.
3. Attach the tusks, ears, and button eyes. Of course, no elephant is complete without wrinkles. Use black thread to stitch horizontal lines on the trunk, scrunching the fabric as you stitch for a realistic effect. Add a few lines on the tip of the trunk for nostrils.
