Sock Monkey Weekend with Tori and Hannah

It was a sock monkey weekend with the girls. A brown sock monkey kit, a Christmas gift, was on sale at Jo Ann's.
Before we started, we viewed several YouTube video clips of other kids making sock monkeys. After a trip to Walmart for a pair of socks for the second monkey, we were ready to make sock monkeys.
Not the easiest project we have attempted, but lots of fun. Tori started her sock monkey first. Then Hannah. We actually had both in various stages at the same time.
Now the girls are thinking of ways to dress the monkeys up with bracelets, ear rings, maybe some skirts ....
So far all they have are scarfs. Aren't the little pink felt hearts sweet.
Tori's made the brown monkey and Hannah made the blue monkey.
It was a good weekend.

Aren't they cute! And, no, they are not an easy project so they should be proud. I think the little extras are plenty.
