What you need for this ZOOMdo:
  • pair of new or old socks, just make sure to get permission
  • yarn, felt, and buttons
  • permanent markers or fabric markers, you can find them at a crafts store
  • fabric glue, you can find this at a crafts store too
  • scissors
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. First decide what kind of face you want on your socks. You can draw the eyes, nose and mouth on your socks, or glue on felt, buttons and yarn.
  2. For example, you could glue buttons on for the eyes, draw the nose with markers, and cut a red mouth out of felt and glue it on.
  3. If you know how to sew, instead of gluing them, you can sew the eyes and mouth on. Make sure that you don't sew your sock closed or else you won't be able to put your foot in it!
  4. Now decide what you want to do for the hair. You could cut yarn and glue it on.
  5. Now, you can wear your fun socks around your house like slippers.
  6. Remember that there's no "right way" to decorate your socks. Be creative and have FUN!
