One of our favorite things to do when the weather is nice is explore the wooded parks near our home! It’s so nice to get out of the house, stretch your legs, and enjoy all of the nature around you! It’s fun to collect interesting leaves, acorns, pinecones, or leaves that they find along the path. Of course, we are always on the lookout for any creatures we find along the way! This Paper Bag Beaver Puppet is a great way to keep the fun going after you get home from your nature walk! 

Puppets are always a big hit around our house. They are so much fun to make, and then we spend hours making up stories for our puppets and acting them out. My kids loved making and playing with this cute Paper Bag Frog Puppet, so I knew they would be so excited to make this Paper Bag Beaver Puppet!

Supplies

Directions

  • Select black, white, pink, and 3 different shades of brown colored papers for the bear paper bag puppet craft. Trace the inner ear and blush cutouts on pink paper, trace the nose on black, track the belly pattern on a lighter shade of brown colored paper, trace the tooth on the white paper, trace the head, body (see next step), and leg patterns on the medium shade of brown paper and trace the tail pattern on the dark shade of brown paper. Cut out the traced pattern nicely.

  • Attach inner ear cutouts on the ear parts of the head pattern. Cut out a piece of paper from the medium shade of brown colored craft paper to cover either side of the paper bag, this will be the body pattern of the beaver puppet. Attach the belly cutout in the middle of the body cutout and attach the leg cutouts on the bottom side of the body pattern. 
  • Attach the eyes and the nose cutouts on the head pattern.
