How to make our paper bag Christmas puppets

  1. Fold a regular-sized, brown paper lunch bag in half vertically and glue the two sides together. This forms a long, rectangle shape with a hole at the bottom for students to use as a puppet.
  2. Colour in the cutouts on the template, or use the templates to shape fabric materials or craft paper.
  3. Design your Christmas characters’ outfits and then cut out all of the pieces you need.
  4. Glue the template pieces and clothing pieces onto the paper bag!
