Paper Bag Cookie Monster Craft [Free Template]

Sesame Street is the classic children’s tv show, right? It’s been on since the 70’s and kids today still love it!

One of the most popular characters seems to be Cookie Monster. Seriously, what kid can’t relate to always wanting to eat cookies?!

Because we love him so much, we created this simple paper bag Cookie Monster craft. It’s amazingly easy to create and pretty quick to make too!

If you like this idea, be sure to browse through all of our paper bag puppet crafts for kids.

We’ve also created a free printable template to make it simple enough for young kids of all ages to help with.

Glue the blue body piece to the base of the brown paper bag. We made two different sizes of Cookie Monsters. The first one was a full-length brown bag and the second was about 3 inches shorter.

You can do either one, but we think the shorter paper bag looks cuter!

Position Cookie’s face to the top flap of the brown paper bag and glue in place. Next, grab his eyes and glue them to the top of his face. Place them so that the eyes are half off the face.

Cookie Monster’s Foodie Truck – If you have a young child who likes picture books, this is a great option. With just a few words and lots of colorful pictures, this book will keep kids engaged!

Cookie Countdown – This book is a fun option for kids! It has 3D cookies that kids can feel. It’s also a great introduction to subtraction and counting!
