Directions

  1. Step 1: Assemble the parts

    Print the puppet printable and then cut out all the pieces.

  2. Step 2: Make the face and the mouth

    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. Attach the ears behind the top corners of the bag.

  3. Step 3: Make the arms and the tummy

    Attach the arms to the inside creases of the bag, facing front. Attach the tummy to the center of the bag.

  4. Step 4: Make the feet and the tail

    Attach the feet to the bottom corners of the bag, from the inside. Attach the tail to the back of the bag, allowing it to hang over the side.

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