I’m not sure where to credit this idea to, although I got it from my friends Katy and Sarah. It’s great. (When i find a link, I’ll add it 🙂 )
Fill a sports sock to nearly the heel with rice and tie a knot. Then tie a white string (or a scarf) around the neck to give it definition and make a head. Fold the ribbed part of the sock back over on itself and over the knot and then paint it. We turned a little rim back up again to give the hat a cuff, as it were (at least some of us did).
Add goggly eyes and draw on buttons etc.
Easy peasy lemon squeezy.
Ps – Josie has been playing with the nativity (that is in fact two amalgamated nativities!) Can you tell?
