Paper Bag Animals

ages 2-6


Paper lunch bag, crayon or markers, construction paper, glue

Activity Detail

Turn a brown lunch bag upside down so that the bottom of the bag becomes the top of the puppet. Use the flap for face, drawing on a nose and some eyes. When you open the flap, have your child draw a tongue under the flap or attach a tongue made from red construction paper. You can also have them glue ears to the top of the bag above the eyes and arms on the sides. Use your new puppet to sing songs or act out a favorite story! These are so easy to create that you and your child can create a whole company of puppets to put on a fantastic show.

Other Savvy parents recommend creating not just animals with your paper bag puppets but also people, dragons, aliens, anything your child can dream up.

Good, old-school activity......can be more or less time-intensive depending on what materials you have available.
