FREE! Printable sock monkey puppet template

At long last, it’s my most requested, most in-demand free printable… the Create Your Own Sock Monkey Puppet kit!

FREE printable sock monkey puppet template

This adorable project first debuted last summer in a fabulous sock monkey party that was featured on Amy Atlas and Kara’s Party Ideas in addition to my own blog. The make your own puppet craft is such a great idea for a sock monkey party activity, but here’s what – it had nothing to do with me! Party planner and proud mama Courtney of Courtney Adams Design was the one who came up with the idea for her son’s party, and she cut out all of the various shapes on her own. (Trust me, I was just as impressed by her creativity as you were!)

But after all of the requests for a template, I knew I’d have to recreate the project as a free download. So, I created a 3-page free printable that includes a photo of the project, a list of materials, templates, and Courtney’s easy-to-follow instructions. I did several test runs, so I can tell you, the finished sock monkey hand puppets are even cuter in person! Now I just need a sock monkey puppet theater, too. ; )

You can download the free printable template here. You can also see lots more sock monkey party inspiration here!

Oh, and P.S. – the sock monkey in this project coordinates with all of the sock monkey party paper goods and printables for sale in my shop. It’s a perfect match!

      Aw, I like 'poppet'! ; ) I totally hear ya about the lack of sleep leading to loss of typing function, believe me. And absolutely, you could make as many copies of the puppet template as you would like! : )

    Hi there, I love this idea for my son's first bday. However I really do not want to cut out all of those pieces x 20! Would you be willing to publish the pieces separately? I can have my cricut do all the dirty work of cutting for me!
