Today on Craft Play Learn we have a quick and simple paper bag dog puppet craft for kids. My family loves dogs. We have two Bichon Frise named Yoda and Casper and they are super cute. This fun and easy dog craft are also super cute and simple to make with the little ones.
Paper Bag Dog Craft for Kids
Making simple crafts can be really fun and when you can use recycled materials to ave fun it’s even better. Today I’ll be sharing this easy dog puppet idea. If you don’t have the supplies, simply switch things. It’s all about the process and having fun rather than making something that is perfect!
What You Will Need for Your Paper Dog Puppet
- brown paper bag
- brown, yellow, white, and blue felt
- a marker pen
- a pair of scissors
- one sheet of sparkly red glitter paper
How to Make This Paper Dog Craft
Draw the shapes you will need with your marker pen. Cut out the dog ears from the brown felt.
Cut out two white ovals for eyes and smaller blue ovals for the pupils. Cut out a yellow triangle nose and a red tongue.
Next glue all the pieces in place. The activity will not take too long but you will need to allow time for the glue to dry.
You could also try making other animals from paper bags such as a pig, a cat or a mouse.
