There's A Wocket in My Pocket

We read There's A Wocket In My Pocket
By Dr. Seuss

Which is just a silly rhyming book.
So cute.

Every time we turned a page she would giggle with delight
at the little monsters on each page.

So I got out my unmatched socks box
(One day I went through all my socks and took out all of the non matches,
I put them in a box and labeled them "Future Puppets")

M. went through and picked some frilly socks and stuffed them with quilt batting.

We wrapped rubber bands around them to keep the stuffing in,
Then we painted our "wockets" from top to bottom.
M. would have kept going for days,
she made at least 6 wockets on her own until I put away the sock box.

Then this famous Disney Princess came to be.
Cross my heart she made this whole thing by herself.
Love it.
M. Is totally obsessed with all things Tangled,
so it wasn't suprising that she made this as her Wocket.
Here are all of our fun Wockets
Can you tell which one is mine?
I love doing projects side by side with my children,
I think it expands their imaginations
as to the possibilities of what they can create.
This activity lasted about an hour.

Here is Baby H.'s Wocket.

Happy Read Across America Day!
