Paper Bag Pumpkin

Turn an ordinary paper bag into a unique trick or treat with our pumpkin crafts for kids.

Write a play or story, then create all the characters you will need out of paper bags.

Before we get crafting, create a blueprint for the puppet you wish to make.

For our example, we have decided to make a princess to act out a fairy tale story with Prince Charming.

Paper Bag Puppets

Our story has a beautiful princess as a main character. Here's how you can make her:

Craft Supplies:

  • Brown Paper Lunch Bags
  • String (if character needs hair)
  • Googly Eyes
  • Construction Paper

Step #1:

In the fold of the bag crate your puppets mouth. You can do this by coloring the inside red, or maybe add some lips with construction paper.

Step #2:

On the top glue on some string as hair and any hat they may be wearing. For ours we have added hair and a gold crown.

Step #3:

Decorate your face as desired. use goggly eyes to give your puppet some more character.

Also, add arms to the sides if your character has arms.
