We’re partnering with Netflix this year as part of their #StreamTeam and you might have caught our Netflix Kids Shows List we shared earlier this year. Netflix gave us some sock puppet ideas to go with some of the favorite kids shows on Netflix!
They are perfect for summer break when we just want to do something fun together!
Easy Sock Puppet Ideas
We love to get crafty around here, but they have to be easy crafts!
The kids also love making crafts that go along with favorite TV, movie, and book characters. Easy to make sock puppets are perfect because you can pick up some affordable supplies or just grab things from around the house!
Check out how easy this sock puppets craft is to make!
We had the materials to make a few of our favorite Netflix Kids characters:

Sock Puppet Instructions
- The first step in making any sock puppet ideas that you have is to lay out all of the pieces. Make a plan!
- Then glue everything you need on one side.
- Turn the puppet over and glue anything you need to be added to the other side.
- Let dry completely. (This might be the most challenging part but otherwise, pieces start falling off within moments!)
Your easy to make sock puppets can represent any of your child’s favorite characters or just be a creation from their own imagination! That’s the beauty of this craft idea!
Sock puppet ideas are a great way to let your kids get creative in a very open-ended way.
Netflix Kids shows are all about exploring creative interests! Whether your kids love music, dance, art or another creative outlet, they can find shows on Netflix to inspire them to bring stories to life through their talents!
