Google Button Eyes and Button Noses

With so many kids in my family
Mismatched socks we had many
Stripes, whites and array of colors

With buttons, yarn, ribbons and glue
Duct tape, felt and markers too
We'd go toe-to-toe creating
Sock puppets of different kinds

Google button eyes and button noses
Yarn for hair, felt mouths and ears
Duct tape bow ties or embellishments 
Of ribbons and broken old jewelry

Using are new funny-looking puppets
Button eyes wiggling upon our hands
Nine of us would put on puppet plays
Each puppet was given a crazy name
And now it's show time, so quiet please

For Black Eyed Susan's contest, "Buttons"

    Most of us kids were creative, and with so many of us we used what ever we could find to create art of some form. Today we have artist of many in my family: painters, stain glass mental design, and poem writing. Thanks Andrea for stopping by and commenting. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Kept us kids quiet and busy bringing out our creative side using our imaginations. Not like today where kids text all day in foreign words that make no spence to me. Thanks for your comment and stopping by. Warm Smiles, Connie

    Crafts from scraps great for children's imaginations and my mom loved it when our hands were busy, not idle and complaining, "There's nothing to do, we're bored." Thanks for stopping by and your comment. Warm Smiles, Connie
