Sock Hop Craft

Sock Hop Craft

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Until we figure out where missing socks actually go when they vanish from our laundry baskets, here's a way to get some use from the singleton left behind.


  • Spoon or funnel
  • Dried lentils
  • Child's sock
  • Rubber band
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • White pom-pom or cotton ball
  • Tacky glue


  1. To make your own bunny beanbag, use a spoon or a funnel to add dried lentils to a child's sock, filling it up just past the heel. Close the sock with a tightly looped rubber band.
  2. To create the head and neck, tie a ribbon around the sock just below the heel.
  3. Use scissors to cut the sock's cuff into two ears, rounding the edges to give them the right shape.
  4. Cut a nose, teeth, and eyes from felt. Attach the facial features and a white pom-pom or cotton ball tail with tacky glue.
