Bunny Paper Bag Puppet

Bunnies are just so cute! With their fluffy fur and bushy little tails, they definitely bring so much joy. I am so excited for spring and all of the fun crafts that my kids will get to do. I am especially excited about this Bunny Paper Bag Puppet!

It is perfect for letting your kids’ imaginations run as they use them for storytelling. I just love hearing the stories that they will come up with and know that so many will come from making these bunnies!

It is so exciting to play with bunnies and to incorporate them into your springtime fun! It’s great that there are so many adorable ways to create them and play with them. I especially love to use them throughout my house as decoration and as party crafts! They can be used as inspiration for adorable Spring or Easter treats! My kids really love when I get creative with the seasons. 

Looking for a great reason to get your family together and make a fun evening of storytelling! Then this is the craft for you! The kids could get together and create a story to tell and each family member can have a part using their own paper bag puppets! 

I really hope that you enjoy making this craft as much as my kids and I did. It was so fun and they turned out so cute! It’s so easy and you should really give it a try!

Tips and Tricks

  • Use different paper colors. In order to make each bunny special for each kid, try using different colored paper for the pieces.
  • Assist with cutting the pieces. If you are working with a smaller kid, it may be helpful to assist with the cutting. There are a few smaller parts to be cut out.
  • Add texture. You can add cotton balls on the tail or other parts of the bunny to create a more fluffy textured bunny.
