Primary TechniquePaper Crafts
- Colored Craft Papers
- Paper Bag
- Craft Glue
Select grey and black colored craft papers for the badger paper bag puppet. Trace the head, body, tail, and leg patterns on the grey colored craft paper and trace the rest of the patterns (eye patches, nose, and inner ear patterns) on the black paper. You can use the eyes directly from the template or you can draw eyes on a piece of white paper and cut them out.
The size of the body pattern would depend on the size of the paper bag you’ll be using. Cut out a piece of paper from the grey colored craft paper to cover either side of the paper bag. Attach the leg cutouts on the bottom side of the paper prepared for the body pattern. Attach the inner ear cutouts on the ear parts of the head pattern.
Attach the eye patches on the top side of the head pattern, keeping the pointy ends facing towards the bottom side of the head.
Attach the eye cutouts on the eye patches and attach the nose cutout near the bottom-middle part of the head pattern.
Attach the tail cutout on either side of the body cutout; keep the tail near the bottom side of the body cutout.
Collect a paper bag appropriate for the puppet patterns; or you can craft your own paper bag from brown paper.
Attach the body pattern on either side of the paper bag, keep the legs towards the open end of the bag, the open end of the paper bag will be the bottom side of the paper bag puppet.
Flatten the bottom side of the paper bag and attach the head pattern on the bottom side to complete the paper bag badger puppet.
