DIY Snake Puppet with Old Socks and me?

The lighting speed with which motherhood is changing my DNA, I am pretty close to attaining nirvana. Seriously, anyone who knows me, will vouch for my two left hands in art. But that was that, before the twins arrived. Now I could soon start my tutorials on DIY crafts. From balloon dolls to ribbon-flowers to Tetra Pak castles and now DIY snake puppets with old socks. 

DIY Snake Puppets are fun to make

DIY Snake Puppets are fun to make and can keep your kindergartens happily busy for a long long time. And isn't it fun to finally find some good use of that single sock in the cupboard. Seriously where do these keep popping out of? 

Snake and Puppet Trivia:

1) Snakes in Hindi are called Saanp, in French Serpent, in German Schlange, and Serpiente in Spanish. 

2) Ophidiophobia or Herpetophobia - The fear of snakes and fear of reptiles like lizard and snakes respectively, are the most common phobias worldwide.

3) The Indian gray mongoose is well known for its ability to fight and kill venomous snakes like Cobra and is immune to its venom.  

4) The heaviest Snake in the world weighs more than 250kg, and its is the Anaconda.

5) Snakes do not have external ears or eardrums. Sound vibration is picked intercepted by their skin, muscles, and bones to their inner ears. 

6) There are different kind of puppets- hand puppets, shadow puppets, finger puppets, stick puppets, Ventriloquist’s Dummy, Marionette which is pretty much like katputlis from India. 

2) Historians belive puppetry originated in Europe.

3) Some of the worldwide famous puppeteers are : Jim Henson, Shari Lewis and Frank Oz
