Day 7: Sock Monkey Day

It’s true: today is Sock Monkey Day and it’s time for a confession.

I have never made a sock puppet.


Have you?

Perhaps today is the day when you take one of your old odd socks—we’ve all got odd socks lurking in holes, right?—and turn it into a sock puppet. All you need is some googly eyes and a needle and thread to make a mouth. And possibly a wig for hair.

In fact, just watch RuPaul’s Drag Race for their sock puppet skit; it’s always hilarious.

If you’re not into making sock puppets, but you fancy playing a writing game, hop over here instead and grab yourself my silly writing games to help you bust any writers block.

Then set a timer for 5 minutes and start playing.
