Directions

  1. Step 1: Make Dora's face and mouth

    Print out the Dora Paper Bag Puppet printable. Cut out all the pieces, then, using tape or a glue stick, attach the face to the paper bag flap, lining up the bottom edge of the face to the bottom edge of the flap. Attach the mouth to the front of the bag, just below the flap's edge.

  2. Step 2: Make Dora's arms and body

    Attach the arms to the inside creases of the bag, facing front, and the body to the front of the bag, just under her chin (see photo).

  3. Step 3: Make Dora's feet

    Attach the feet to the bottom of the bag, from the inside.

Tip: Help your preschooler cut out the puppet pieces. Keep the brown paper lunch bag flat with the flap at the top (facing you) as you attach the pieces.
