I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, one of my favorite things to do was make puppets out of paper bags. It was so much fun to come up with different designs and personalities for them. And now that my own kids are getting older, they love making puppets too! So today, we’re making a Mirabel paper bag puppet! 

Encanto Paper Bag Craft

Your kids may have been singing “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” over and over to the point where you found yourself singing along or am I the only one? Encanto was a hit movie of 2021 and Disney outdid themselves by making a movie about a girl who has a positive outlook even when things may not be going the best for her. If you are looking for a movie about a family who comes together no matter what happens then Encanto is perfect for you. 

Gather your family together and make these Mirabel Paper bag puppets and snuggle in for movie night. Allow your kids to use their imagination and play with their paper bag puppet as they watch the Madrigal family figure out why their love runs deep for each other.
