Paper Bag Puppets
Make those cloudy days fly away! These birds are a great rainy day activity.
Create the Beak: Using scissors and Puppet Pattern.pdf, cut top and bottom of beak from yellow or orange paper and cut tongue from red paper.
Make the Eyes & Rosy Cheeks: Cut two 1-1/4” circles from a bright color for circles around eyes. Glue two 15mm Wiggly Eyes to the center of the circles. Cut two 2” circles from a different bright color for cheeks.
Accent: Using a black marker, draw nostrils on top of beak and outline beak pieces.
Create the Bird: The bottom of the bag is the bird’s head. Glue bottom of beak to bag under flap. Glue tongue to bottom beak. Glue cheek circles to sides of head. Glue top of beak to head, placed above lower beak. Glue eyes in place, as shown.
Embellish: Glue feathers to back of head. Let dry.
