Picture of Cute Sock Animal Plushies (no sewing, gluing or cutting)
My older sister recently got a job working at an Alaska boarding school where her job is to keep the kids entertained for the 8 hours between their lessons ending and their bedtime.  She asked for help finding crafts for the kids to do, and using some after-Christmas-clearance-sale socks my mom found, I came up with these simple, cute plushies.  The real appeal about these little critters is that there is no gluing, cutting or sewing needed! Just stuffing and some rubber bands to shape them.

I'll be showing you how to make a mouse in the pictures, but you can modify the design to make several different types of animals, I'll give some suggestions when you're done.

Step 1: What you will need:

Picture of What you will need:
-fuzzy ankle sock (any size will really work, though I used a size 9)


-small stretchy rubber bands – the kind they use for hair styling, you can get packs of them from beauty supply stores

-sharpie marker

-5 inch piece of ribbon (for the tail, if you're making a mouse like I do in the pictures)

Wonderful. I love it. My daughter likes making them and then taking them apart and then making them again in a different way. My sister-in-law loves your idea too. Props!
your daughters are very creative
