Make These Captain Underpants Sock Puppets

Do you have kids in your house that love the Epic Tales of Captain Underpants books? I sure do! That is why I am so excited to let you know that tomorrow, July 13th, DreamWorks The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants premiers on Netflix!

DreamWorks generously sent us a package filled with goodies to celebrate this great premier. In our package we had some craft supplies to create 2 sock puppets of the best friends Harold Hutchins and George Beard from Captain Underpants.

If you would like to make these sock puppets you will need:

  • 1 Tan Sock
  • 1 Brown Sock
  • 1 Green/Blue Stripe Leg/Arm Warmer
  • 1 White Leg/Arm Warmer
  • 4″ by 6″ Piece of Red Craft Felt
  • 4″ by 6″ Piece of Black Craft Felt
  • 4 Black Buttons
  • 4′ of Yellow Blanket Yarn
  • 4′ of Black Blanket Yarn
  • Glue Gun
  • Glue Sticks
  • Scissors

Check out our step-by-step video tutorial below:

You can adapt the above tutorial to make all kinds of sock puppets using whatever kind of socks and yarn you have in your house. It is a great way to entertain the kids on a rainy day. If you don’t have leg warmers, you can make some by cutting off the foot of a sock.

In our goodie bag my boys were thrilled to find the The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants Wedgie Power Handbook.

Let me know what you think and remember this new series is a great way to get your kids reading the Captain Underpants Books. Are you planning on watching The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants when it premieres on Netflix July 13th?

    Oh such fun! My daughter loved making sock puppets when she was young. And I can’t wait to see this movie. So many great memories associated with the character!
