Step 2: Preparing the Trick

1. Cut a hole in the bottom of the bag about the size of your arm.

2. Put the puppet on your hand.

3. Stick your hand with the puppet on it in the bag and roll down the top of the bag.

4. Roll up the bottom of the puppet so the sock cannot be seen.

5. Cup bag with other hand. (see tag in picture for more details.)

Step 3: Playing the Prank! >:D

When the time is right, punch the puppet through the top of the bag and open its mouth (if you choose to). People will be startled (maybe) and happy.
