These cute Peaceful Puppets will bring peace into everyone's heart. Make them as a Martin Luther King Jr. Day craft project.

What You'll Need:



Fabric marker


Old colorful socks


It's easy to put on a puppet show about friendship and equality.

To make the puppets, cut out 3 circles from felt. Make 2 the same size and 1 slightly smaller. Draw a peace sign on each circle. Glue larger circles on the toe of a sock to make the eyes and the smaller one below to make the nose of your puppet.

Glue on yarn for hair, and cut out a smile from more felt to make the mouth. You can also cut out neckties and buttons or bows from the felt and glue these on, too. Cut 2 small holes on either side of the sock so your fingers can fit through to become the puppet's arms.

Then put on a play about peace!
