The Sock Monster

J is beginning to discover the joys of using a glue stick. I have sourced out a brand that is washable and solvent-free, so he can use it with minimum supervision.

So taken is he by the glue and the ability to create, that he expressed a desire to 'do craft' this morning.  He was rather vocal about it too.

I am still in the process of assembling a decent craft-box. All I have is bits and pieces lying around the house.

So what could we do with one googly eye, scraps of paper and bits of wool? A sock monster, of course!

We don't really do Halloween. So this could be our Halloweeny thing.

I found a lonely old sock belonging to J from when he was a baby lying at the bottom of his sock drawer. We stuck on the googly eye and a woolly nose. A piece of colourful string became smiling lips. (You don't do grumpy,  scary monsters when you are two). We gave our monster some spiky blue paper hair.

And there we had him. Our smiley Sock Monster. J was thrilled to bits. We took turns wiggling him on our hands. He hid behind cushions,  he tickled our tummies and he made us giggle.

Our Sock Monster does not have a name yet. What shall we call him?
