Paper Bag Sheep Craft For Kids

Paper bag puppets are awesome because the bulk of the materials, paper and brown paper bags, are so cheap!

We ran out of brown paper bags a little while ago and headed to the store to get some more. We ended up at Target (doesn’t everyone?) and got a huge stack for about $2!!!

That’s one of the best reasons to make puppets in my opinion!

Supplies

Directions

Download the paper bag sheep template, print and cut out the pieces.

Making This Craft In A Group Setting

If you’re searching for an easy craft to do in the classroom, daycare or library, this is a great choice!

The majority of cutting is straight lines (besides the bangs and the ears), so even children who are working on scissor skills will be able to cut these lines.

On top of that, we’ve also provided you with a free printable template for multiple children.

In this part of the template, all of the pieces are separated by the colored paper they are to be printed on. This means you won’t have to cut, trace onto the paper you need, and cut again!

Don’t forget to scroll to the end of this page and enter your email in the form to get your copy of the template.
