Happy Weekend! Weekend Links is an opportunity to share all of the wonderful things that I have happened across in my reading and books travels on the Internet. This week, I seem to be reliving childhood because I seem to have doll/puppet on the brain!

While doing some “Something To Do” research to compliment the book review for Julia Dweck’s new book Blucy, I came across some adorable sock crafts at the Inadvertent Farmer. The tutorial I found originally was for a sock kitty craft, but when I did a little snooping around her blog, I found more delightful sock animal crafts!

Apple Dolls!

Here’s one I haven’t done in years. Did you know you can make dolls with very expressive faces with apples? This great article and tutorial on Craft Journal shows just how fun and easy it is to make Apple Dolls.

Who doesn’t love Maurice Sendak’s Where the Wild Things Are?

Whimsy-Love has a very cute Wild Thing Puppet craft HERE.

Finger Puppet Fun

Puppets don’t have to involve the whole hand. My dear friend Marilyn at The Toymaker shows how young minds can have wonderful fun with these free paper toy finger puppets

No puppet extravaganza would be complete without a dragon! This adorable Chinese Dragon craft from Kidspot is sure to please kids of any age.
