Easy & Fun Paper Bag Puppets For Kids

We’re certain there are plenty of choices on this list to keep your kids occupied and having fun for quite a long time!

Ways To Use Paper Bag Puppets

One great benefit of paper bag puppets is how kids can use them for educational purposes.

Puppets are a great outlet for getting kids to talk!

Shy kids can put on a puppet and then feel like the puppet is the one talking, not them. This can encourage them to be more social and participate with other children.

Through using a paper bag puppet, kids can increase their confidence, work on sentence formation and storytelling!

If you’re making these puppets at home with siblings or in a classroom or other group setting, you can have kids come together in small groups and put on a puppet show.

This is a fabulous way to help children access their creativity and imagination!

Puppets are also a great tool for independent pretend play. Every time we finish making a new paper bag puppet, my 5-year-old spends the next half hour with his new “toy”.

He makes him play with his other toys, shows him his favorite things and has fun pretending all sorts of crazy scenarios.

However your child or students decide to use these brown paper bag puppets, we’re sure they’ll be a huge hit!
