• Sock monkeying around!

    October 03, 2012

    I have beary big news, readers.

    Sock Monkey came out in stores today! I don’t know if you know this, but you can go to the Build-A-Bear Workshop website and read all about him! His name is Norm. Read his story and find out his favorite things to do at www.buildabear.com/animalstories.

    Did you know people have been making their own sock monkeys for more than 100 years? People used to make them for their kids to have something to play with and they used worn out socks that had holes in the heels. What a fun way to reuse and recycle!

    What kind of creative ways have you found to reuse old toys or clothes?

    Keep creating!
