This sock doll project is one of my favorites that I teach to 5th-graders. I know that I say that almost every project is "one of my favorites" but come on, the truth is that I genuinely love my job and spend a lot of time planning projects that are fun and also teach the students important skills so of course I love teaching them.
For this workshop, I provided the teachers with handouts that showed each step of the process for hand-sewing their spunky sock dolls and so that they could take that back to their school to make copies if they wanted to.
I walked the teachers through each step of the process and provided them with tons of different colored/patterned socks, fabric, buttons, yarn, etc etc to make unique and silly sock dolls.
As I also see in the classroom, the teachers worked at different speeds and so a handful of teachers finished their projects and quite a few ended up taking them home to finish them later.
What a joy this experience was!
