Our local cub scouts wanted to put on a play and of course scouts is full of characters and details from The Jungle Book so what better story to choose? As the resident crazy crafter, I was asked to help design sock puppets that the cubs could assemble themselves and use in the play. We had four glue guns going and a line up of eager 8-10 year olds sticking on pre-made tails, ears, eyes, noses and bits of fur. It was such a fun night and the play was AWESOME! I was so pleased to have been invited to participate.

Akela and Raksha (aka mama and papa wolf)

There were 6 wolf cubs

Bhaaloo

Bagheera


Kaa


Shere Khan


Mowgli


And King Louie who doesn't appear in the original story but was my test sock puppet and now belongs to my daughter who just Loves his to bits, lol.

This is so great...involving the cub scouts...I bet they had a blast and learned a thing or two!

Did you have some of the felt pieces already cut out for them?  How much prep work did you do?  I was thinking that as a summer camp project for wee ones, it would be nice to have a container of noses, ears, lips, etc. for them to pick to make random sock puppets...

great idea and execution, CLM...
