It’s true: today is Sock Monkey Day and it’s time for a confession.
I have never made a sock puppet.
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.
