All the Single Socks (Printable Puppets)

Fall is in the air in Austin, and it’s that time of year to open your sock drawer and pull out your favorite pair of socks. Wait, oh no…there’s only one of them! I guess a lot can happen over the course of the summer.

(Sung to the tune of All the Single Ladies)
All the single socks, all the single socks
All the single socks, all the single socks
All the single socks, all the single socks
All the single socks,
Now put your hand up!

Up in the sock, gonna make it rock,
I’m doing my own little thing.
My hand tucks in, the talk begins,
I’ve never felt so free.

Look to the right, no room for uptight,
And why would I waste my time?
Cuz I’ve paid my dues, in someone’s shoes,
It’s time I had my rhyme.

Cause if you liked me then you should put a hand in it,
If you like me then you should put a hand in it,
You know you shouldn’t put a foot in it,
But if you like me then you should put a hand in it.

(dancing with your sock) Wuh uh oh flip flip flop, Wuh uh oh clip, clip clop uh uh oh oh uh oh uh uh oh...

Create your own sockmonster puppet and – yikes! - make it light up with circuitry!  Take pictures in the Sock Puppet Photo Booth.  Rock out with your friends on the Socktoberfest stage.  We'll bring the socks, you bring the hand!

As an added bonus, watch Eric Carle tell the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and then entertain your family and friends by performing it with a sock puppet! Literature Live! provides everything you need, in our printable puppet series, to bring the beloved story to life. You will never throw away another stray sock, when you discover how entertaining it is to play with your new friend. Be creative, have fun and spread the joy!
