Make Your Own Sock Poi:
Using two socks, take either tennis balls, soil, or sand, or old rice/couscous. Place equal amount (size of tennis balls) into freezer bag and tape and close.
Place bags into the ends of two long socks or cut the legs off old tights and tie the ends or use elastic bands.
In large space hold each sock in each hand and work first with simple circles to side of body, develop towards figure of eight in front of body, each hand taking it in turns.
There are lots of Poi demos on Youtube
Making a sock snake:
A fun and easy make with little ones!
Using one long sock, plain or stripey
Use googly eyes and attach with glue
Use material or paper to make a tongue. Simply a strip with a V shape cut out at the end
Decorate with pens or paint the body of the snake
Play with your snakes, create a jungle in your living room with cushions and blankets
Find a piece of music and creat a snake dance (Jungle book soundtrack would be idea!)
An easy game to play whilst having a cuppa!!
Ask your children to fill each sock with a different object
Take it in turns to feel, describing what you can feel and try and guess
Separate the socks
Adult or one child hides one of each sock. Give the child the other socks and they have to find them and match them creating pairs
