One of my favorite things to make are animal crafts! Today I’m going to share how to make this super easy Puppy Paper Bag Puppet that’s great for pretend play or an animal theme lesson! Here’s what you’ll need.
Puppy Paper Bag Puppet
- Paper bag
- Pink and brown felt or construction paper
- Black, pink, and brown markers
- Googly eyes
Start by folding a piece of your brown felt in half, and drawing a large teardrop shape to be the puppy’s ears. Go ahead and cut it out through both layers of felt, and you’ll have two ears! Put some glue on the top corner of the bottom flap (the “face” part) of your paper bag.
And glue on your ears! Then glue on your eyes. You can put them close together or far apart, or even have them a little wonky for a super silly cartoon style puppy! Take your black marker and draw on a nose.
Then draw a line coming down from the nose, and a smile! Make sure to connect the smile beyond the flap edge, down onto the body of the puppy. Now take your pink felt and draw a big tongue on it! You can add a center line like I did, or leave it plain. Then flip the tongue over and add some glue to the back.
Lift the flap, and glue the tongue down so the top goes just over the top line of the smile so you won’t see the top of the tongue when the flap is down. Now that the basics are done, you can go ahead and decorate your puppy! You can take your brown marker and add cute spots like I did, or you can add a collar or even draw a silly sweater on your puppy!
Let the glue dry completely and your puppy is all ready to play with! I hope you enjoyed learning how to make this Puppy Paper Bag Puppet with me today!
