Good Free App of the Day: Sock Puppets - great for social skills and speech/language practice

Sock puppets are so cute and so much fun to play with! They can be used when practicing speech and language concepts. They can help a child act out a stressful social situation and talk through their emotions. There are so many possibilities for incorporating sock puppets into a child's learning experiences. Instead of pulling out all the craft supplies and building backgrounds, just download this FREE app for your child! Children will pick the puppets and scenery, and then they can record their story. The puppet voices can be changed in settings to different pitches, which may be important for some children. A fun app for any kid, and an educational one for many!

From iTunes:
Sock Puppets lets you create your own lip-synched videos and share them on Facebook and YouTube. Add Puppets, props, scenery, and backgrounds and start creating. Hit the record button and the puppets automatically lip-synch to your voice.

Friends can work together with multiple puppets and create hilarious conversations. While recording, simply tap a puppet and that puppet will lip-synch, tap a different puppet and switch auto lip-synching to it. Switch backgrounds to take your puppets to different places, move the puppets, props and scenery to animate them while recording. Cartoon and photo realistic puppets are included.

Heather S. has never been a fan of sock puppets, and she thinks it is because she hates feet and even clean socks remind her of dirty feet.
