Sock Cat and Mouse Craft for Kids

Sock Cat and Mouse Craft for Kids www.daniellesplace.comWhat you will need:

Two 100% polyester adult socks (these socks are very stretchy)

Pink felt for the ears

Pink craft foam for the nose

Small eyes

Low temp glue gun

Polyester fiberfill

Pink acrylic paint

White craft foam for the feet

Sewing machine or thread and needle

Scissors

 

How to Make Sock Cat and Mouse Craft:

1. Cut the toe off one sock about 4 1/2" from the end to make the head. Stuff the head with fiberfill. Close the head by gluing the middle of the cut end together. Don't worry about frayed ends. This type of sock does not fray and the glue will keep it from fraying if any. Pull up on the two sides that are not glued to form the ears. Then stick some glue inside on of the ear shapes and press the material together while pulling up on the material to form the ears. Wait until the glue dries before releasing. See the picture above. Then glue the other ear the same way.

2. To make the body lay another sock flat so that the heal of the sock is on top. Cut the toe off about 5" from the center of the heal. Cut a slit about 3" up the center of that cut end to make the front legs. Cut the cuff end of the sock off about 4" from the center of the heal and cut a slit about 2" to make the back legs. See the diagram below.

cow bean bag diagram3. Turn the sock inside out and sew the inside leg seams leaving the ends of the legs open. Turn the sock right-side out through one of the leg openings. The material is very stretchy and this is very easy to do.

4. Fill the legs and the body with poly-fil. Cut paw shapes from the craft foam and paint on the paw prints with pink acrylic paint. When the paint is dry glue the paws onto the ends of the legs as shown in the picture above.

5. Glue the head to the body as shown in the diagram using a low temp glue gun.

6. Cut the inside of the ears from pink felt and glue them to inside of the ears.

7. To make the eye sockets insert a threaded needle into the place where you want one eye and then bring it back out where you want the other. Pull the thread to make a slight indent and tie it. Glue the eyes to the indents.

8. You can also make an indent for the mouth by inserting a threaded needle where you want the mouth and pushing it through the head to the back of the head. Pull the thread tight to make an indent and then tie it off.

9. Cut a tail from the fold of a left over sock piece at little bigger than you want it. Sew the side of the tail that is not folded and then turn it inside out. The material is very stretchy and is easy to turn inside out even though the tail is very thin. Glue the tail to the body.

Mouse - Stretchy Sock, Pink Felt for the Nose an Ears, Pink Craft Foam for the Feet.

1. Cut off the toe of a sock making one side thinner than the other. The thinner side is the nose. Turn the piece inside out and sew the toe of the sock closed leaving one-half inch open at the nose. Turn it right side out through the hole. Stuff with fiber-fil and then use a glue gun to close the hole.

2. Cut a nose, ears, and tail from the pink felt and glue them to the body.

3. Cut tiny feet from the craft foam and glue them to the body also. To finish glue on tiny black eyes.

Two paper plates

Card stock

Glue and scissors

 

How to Make Three Little Kittens Preschool Craft and Matching Game:

1. Print out the Eyes, Nose, Arms and Tongue Pattern (Printing Problems?) and cut them out. Color the nose and tongue pink.

Mitten Pattern 1 (PDF Pattern)
Mitten Pattern 2 (PDF Pattern)
Mitten Pattern 3 (PDF Pattern) (Printing Problems?)

6. Read your children the poem about the three little kittens that lost their mittens. (You can find it on Enchanted Learning.) Then play a mitten matching game. Place all the mittens on the floor or table spread out in front of your children. Let them take turns finding matching mittens and gluing a set their kitten.

Extensions - You can also use this activity to reinforce other learning skills by using the blank mitten patterns: Mitten Pattern Blank (PDF Pattern) (Printing Problems?)

1. Matching Numbers - Make pairs of mittens with matching numbers.

2. Matching Letters - Make pairs of mittens with matching letters or use the upper and lower case of each letter.

3. Match by Texture - This is a great activity for vision-impaired children - Cut mitten shapes from different types of material. Have your children match the mitten by texture.

4. Letter Sounds - Print out small pictures of different items and place a piece of tape on the back of each one. Using pictures from your child's worksheets works great. Tell your child that the kitty is very hungry but she only wants to eat things that start with the "a" sound. (Move the kitty's tongue back and forth.) Ask your child if he or she can find a picture of something that starts with that sound and place it on the kitty's tongue. If the child is correct, the kitty will eat it. (Pull up the tongue so it looks like the kitty is eating it. And pull it all the way out and remove the picture. Then place the tongue back in it's mouth. If the child picked a picture that does not match that letter sound, just move the tongue back and forth and tell your child that the kitty does not like that one because it doesn't start with that sound, and he should try again. (You can also play this game using ending sounds and long or short vowel sounds.)

5. Writing Numbers or Letters - Give your child a pad of small sticky notes. Tell him that the kitty is hungry for a certain letter or number. He should write the letter or number on the sticky note and feed it to the kitty. If he is correct, the kitty eats it. If not, he must try again.
