I think that paper bag puppets are a marvelous crafts for kids, an ideal way to bring out their creativity, both in creating the puppet and in acting out a story with it. Paper bag puppets are low cost, recyclable and you probably have some paper bags in your kitchen already so that you don’t even have to go out and buy them.
Like many simple things, paper bag puppets can be used in very creative ways. A major movie ticket site in the U.S. (Fandango) uses them in their commercials. Let that be an inspiration for all those budding young puppeteers out there!
I’ll do my part by publishing a few original paper bag puppet designs. The first one is a rabbit puppet. Great for Easter but so cute that you’ll love him at any time during the year. Get the free paper bag puppet pattern here.
