How To Make Spongebob and Patrick Sock Puppets

My daughter, Ashley, made up this craft. Your kids are going to love it!! It is inexpensive and a creative craft for kids. They are so CUTE too. The kids will love playing with them. My granddaughter sure did. We did too !!! Our bloopers and giggles at the end of the video shows how much fun we had.  hahaha  
See Video

Here is what you will need:
*Foam Sheets
*Old Socks
*Goggle Eyes
*Pipe Cleaners
*Glue (hot glue, stick glue or tacky glue)
Tip: Hot glue works best but stick glue is easy for kids to use. Tacky glue takes a long time to dry but works good.
