Making puppets from socks can be a fun project, both for you and your children. Old socks are required and a little cotton wool for filling. Small pieces of sponge can be used to fill, but it will not look as good as watts. You might need some nice buttons for eyes or other bits of fabric and clothing details. For a little blush on the cheeks lipstick can be used of course, if you used bright socks for the head but if the doll is dark then you can use white chalk crayon or greasy makeup doll.
