A fun, hands-on craft activity making paper bag pirates!

Use this teaching resource in the classroom to make fun paper bag pirate puppets.

This also makes a great, hands-on Talk Like a Pirate Day activity!

  1. Fold a regular sized, brown paper lunch bag in half vertically and glue the two sides together.
  2. This forms a long, rectangle shape with a hole at the bottom for students to use as a puppet.
  3. Colour in the cutouts on the template.
  4. Design your pirate’s outfit.
  5. Cut out all of the pieces you need.
  6. Glue the template pieces and clothing pieces onto the paper bag!

Hi, I don’t quite understand the folding and gluing of the paperpag? Could you please be more specific about that, as in vertical or horizontal fold and where in relation to the bag opening?? TIA

Hi Lisa,

Thank you for your question! The cutouts are designed to fit on a paper bag folded in half vertically, with the opening at the bottom.

I have updated the instructions and added a video that demonstrates the paper bag pirate puppets being made. Please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any additional questions.

Kind regards,
Cassie (Teach Starter)
