How to Make Puppets Using Paper Bags

Simple Paper Bag Puppet Craft
How to Make Puppets Using Paper Bags

Instructions for making simple puppets using paper lunch bags, shared by Julie.

Age Guideline: 2 Years and Up
Time Required: 30+ minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:
Paper Lunch Bag
Crayons, Markers, or Paint
Construction Paper
Yarn (for hair)
Craft Glue

You can make a large variety of puppets that look like people, animals, or mythical creatures.

Lay the lunch bag flat with folded bottom facing up. The flap made by the bottom fold will be the mouth. You can decorate it anyway you like.

I cut out a red tongue and glued inside the flap (can only be seen when puppet is talking). We used gold cording for hair (we had no yarn). We cut out small hands and baseball cap. Used markers to draw eyes. He loved it! I made one for myself at the same time. They sure came in handy a couple of weeks ago. I used them to keep my bible class interested in the lesson that night. (I have 2 and 3 yr old class).
