Day 2 of our week - Our theme this week is safari/zoo!! The letter of the week is D,d and the number of the week is 7.
Project - Giraffe Sock Puppet. I found the idea for this project on the website http://www.craftjr.com/recycled-crafts-giraffe-sock-puppet The sock puppet goes with our safari/zoo theme this week. All of the directions along with pictures are on the website. It is a very simple project - and fun!! Connor and Lauren "spotted" the socks with brown paint. After the paint was dry they glued on the googly eyes and I helped glue the ears and horns on the sock. Materials Needed- an old tan dress sock, 2 brown pom poms, brown pipe cleaner, googly eyes, scissors, brown and black paint, paint brush and a hot glue gun.
