Here’s another great project that you can do with our versatile Sockles! Use the instructions with any spare socks that can’t find their partners and turn them into lovely sock bunnies!
Duration: 10 minutes
Learning Objectives: Use fine motor skills to create a fun bunny character made from a sock! Use easily-available materials in combination to produce a finished project. Follow step-by-step instructions. Can even be used as a starter project for independent learners.
- R22004 Sockles
- Elastic bands (x3)
- Tissue paper or other batting material
Fill ¾ of the Sockle instep with heavier stuffing such as beans, sand or rice. This will form the bunny’s body. Tie off the stuffed half of the instep with an elastic band.
Fill the remaining ¼ of the instep with lighter stuffing, such as cotton balls or shredded tissue paper. Tie off the end of the bunny head with an elastic band.
Cut off the top rim of the Sockles cuff. Cut a bunny ear out of one side of the cuff; cut the second ear out of the other side.
Use markers to draw the bunny’s face. Use pink marker to color the bunny’s inner ear.

Specially designed socks are bundles of fun and the perfect size for easy yet wonderful craft projects. Learn how to make a sock puppet puppy, a cuddly octopus, a cool snowman, a plush bunny, a caterpillar, animal track slippers, a warming bean bag and colorful fish in our future blog posts on Sockles! Use the guide to help students pick a favorite activity and create their own unique sock project.
Sock projects are perfect for engaging students’ creativity and inspiring new project ideas! Hand out a variety of collage materials that you have available in your craft closet. Provide the materials in plastic bowls to make it easier for students to gather and apply the materials to their sock projects.
Before you decorate your Sockles with collage materials, decide if you want to paint them. Make your Sockles colorful! Tip: Paint your Sockles with thicker paint such as tempera. Note: Watercolor paint does not color as well as thick paint. To paint the Sockles evenly, clip one end of the Sockles tight to cardboard and paint the rest of the Sockles with a paint brush or foam brush. Turn the Sockles over and paint the second side. Wait one day for the Sockles to dry. Once the paint is dry, use glitter glue to draw swirls, dots, lines and other decorative elements onto the Sockles.
Alternatively, use markers to make details on the Sockles. Draw faces or patterned details onto the Sockle plush toys! Fill the inside with rice, beans or sand about halfway to three-quarters inside the Sockles. Tie off the open end of the Sockles with an elastic band or sew the opening shut with a safe sewing needle and thread.
Follow the detailed instructional guide to make puppets, animals, hand covers, plush toys and more! The project ideas can be adapted with whatever collage materials you have in your craft closet.
Combine project ideas together with innovative materials to make creative craft projects! Stay tuned for a series of projects coming up that use our Sockles…
