I am seriously into making sock puppets at the moment! I have tried many different variations with the kiddos at my learning house recently. The sock puppet craze started back in March when one of my little boys with autism who has recently started speaking said “les gants” one day! “Les gants” means gloves in French. He was really excited to be labelling a new item (we were working with photos and recordable postcards at the time) and started saying “les gants” very often! To encourage his verbal progress while also keeping him away from an activity that was quickly becoming a little bit toooo repetitive, I had the idea to generalize his glove interest and start the sock puppet craze! He was interested in saying “les gants” and putting gloves on his hands, so I figured he may also be interested in putting sock puppets on his hands and Learning some new vocabulary (eyes, hair, elephant, monkey, dog, cat…). I am very happy to share that the idea worked like a charm and my little guy started a new sock puppet trend at Le Chemin ABA!
Sock puppets are really fun to make and you can include them in so many activities to work on a vast variety of different skills!
