  1. Step 1: Make Rintoo's face

    Print out the Rintoo 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.

  2. Step 2: Make Rintoo's mouth and ears

    Attach the mouth to the front of the bag, just below the flap's edge, and the ears behind the top corners of the bag.

  3. Step 3: Make Rintoo's arms, body, and feet

    Attach the arms to the inside creases of the bag, facing front, the body to the center of the bag, and the feet to the bottom of the bag, from the inside.

  4. Step 4: Make Rintoo's tail

    Attach Rintoo's tail to the back of the bag, allowing it to hang over to the side.

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