Here is a great craft idea that we have done and then when it gets dark we put a white sheet up and a light and put on a shadow puppet show.
First, get some old socks -- make sure to ask permission before turning a sock into a puppet!
Next, get some markers. If you want to be fancy, you can get glue, buttons, extra fabric, and scissors too.
Put your hand in your sock so that four of your fingers are in the toe part of the sock and your thumb is in the heel part. When you move your hand, it will look like your sock puppet is opening his mouth.
Now you can decorate your puppet - give it eyes, a tongue, ears, a nose - anything you want!
Once you have a whole bunch of sock puppets, you can put on a puppet show for your friends and family.
