  • Draw pair of socks tossed on the floor or in a laundry basket.
  • Sketch your socks while you’re wearing them.
  • Look closely at your sock for one minute. Now draw your sock without looking at your paper. Keep looking at the sock while you draw! Don’t look at the paper until you’re done drawing.
  • Trace your sock. Now turn it into something completely different!
  • Choose a pair of socks and two other objects around the house. Draw a picture that includes these objects and tells a story.
  • Draw ten or more socks overlapping.
  • Imagine you lost a sock. Oh no! Create a ‘Missing Sock’ poster for your lost sock.
  • Draw a sock that looks happy, angry, confused, or surprised.
  • Draw a pair of socks that make you feel warm and cozy.
  • Draw socks hanging to dry on a clothesline.
