1. Print out our template and cut out the puppet pieces. Trace on to the colored construction paper and cut out once again. Or you can print the template pieces directly onto colored construction paper and cut them out. Your call :)
2. Once you decide on your printing choices, cut out the template pieces and lay them out in front of you.
3. Color the mouth red and the nose pink.
4. Color the inside of the ears pink.
5. Glue the head onto the folded bottom part of the bag (the flap).
6. Glue the eyes and the muzzle onto the head.
7. Glue on the mouth underneath the flap, so that it shows when the flap is down. Use our picture for reference.
8. Glue the ears to the back of the bunny's head.
9. Glue the chest, the arms and the feet onto bag.
That's it! Congratulations on making your very own paper bag puppets bunny! Time to put on a puppet show!
Paper Bag Puppets Bunny Play Ideas
For every craft that we have on-site, I try to bring to the attention of our readers some subject related item that you might like to purchase. So after making our paper bag puppets bunny craft, you might be wondering why I chose to feature, "The Velveteen Rabbit".
The answer is really simple (like our crafts). In my search for products, I saw that 163 people had reviewed this book. So I started reading the reviews (as I always do), and I realized that although I was familiar with the title, I'd never read the book! And it's a classic children's book....and I spent every Saturday of my childhood checking books out from the local Bookmobile! How had I overlooked this title?
I don't have the answer to that particular question, and my own parents are no longer available to ask...but what they did teach me is that it's never too late to correct a wrong.
Yep, you guessed it...placed my order to Amazon a minute ago. In ten days, I'll be getting the package (I live outside of the U.S.), and I'll start reading....and enjoying...and making sure my own kids and grandkids know about this book.
