Sock Puppets Making at Kool Kidz Docklands

Sock Puppets Making at Kool Kidz Docklands

Today in the Kinder room we made sock puppets after reading the book “It’s great to be calm”. The book is about a girl who can’t make a sock puppet and gets frustrated and upset. Her friend offers to help and they successfully make one and perform a sock puppet show to the rest of the class. We learnt that taking deep breaths and hugging ourselves is a great way to calm down when we’re upset or frustrated. We also unleashed our creativity and imagination by creating our own sock puppets.
