PAPER BAG puppet MONKEY craft

On the day I was born I was gifted a Monkey Teddy.

I grew to love my Monkey and although I am now 36, Monkey George is a teddy which I still own. Yes, he is ragged and now lives in my daughter’s room but getting a monkey at such a young age  meant I have always loved Monkeys.

I love this Monkey Craft Idea and hope you do too!
