How to Make Paper Bag Animals
Nearly six months later, they pulled out our paper bags and made this delightful collection of paper bag creatures! They used some little felt circles, pipe cleaners and pom poms from our home makerspace kit.
They started off simple, with a cat, dog, and mouse.
Paper bag crafts beg to go along with a story. Their puppy craft made me think of The Poky Little Puppy. The cat reminded me of Kitten’s First Full Moon, and the mouse reminded me of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. What books do they remind you of?
They they moved onto mythical creatures, where they got really creative!
Paper Bag Monster Craft
I love the way mythical creatures inspire children’s imainations! This guy may be partially inspired by The Gruffalo, which is one of our favorite picture books.
Unicorn Paper Bag Craft
Unicorns are always fun, but this magical creature got wings AND a sparkly pom pom mane and tail. I love the three-dimensional element you get with the pom poms.
Interestingly, as much as my kids love unicorns (and I also adored them as a child), none of us have a favorite unicorn picture book or chapter book. Do you?
