Polar Bear Paper Bag Puppet

Ok, we've all done them- paper lunch bag puppets. I am a huge fan of paper bags. Not only can you carry your lunch in them, you can make puppets galore when you're done with your lunch. Just flip that sucker upside-down, lick up the crumbs, and get out your art supply. Spiff, my three year-old, decided we were going to make a polar bear puppet and since it's winter, I said, sure, why not? So this is a polar bear, but really it could be any bear. Heck, you could make three different bear puppets and put on a Goldilocks and the Specimens of Three Species of Bears. Why not?

What you need:
Paper Lunch Bag
Crayons, Markers, Paint Dobbers, whatever

Here's what you do:
Print up the Printable. Cut out pieces, color. Put lunch bag flat on table with the flap facing front and up. Stick ears onto top corners, face over flap, muzzle on face. Glue paws on. Open flap and glue in teeth and tongue. Stick a hand in the top of the bag, bottom of the puppet and put on a show.
