Put on a fall puppet show with this scarecrow paper bag puppet craft. It’s a fun autumn craft for preschoolers to elementary-aged kids.
How do you make a scarecrow out of a paper bag?
This bright and colorful paper bag scarecrow puppet is so easy to make and so much fun for kids. They’ll love putting on a puppet show, or using these puppets for dramatic play or fall storytime.
- Paper bag
- Colored paper strips
- Glue stick
- Googly eyes
This scarecrow craft is so easy for kids because there’s no cutting involved, they just need to use their imaginations.
If you don’t have thin paper strips or origami paper on hand, you can use a paper cutter to cut construction paper into strips for the kids. Let them attach the scarecrow hair however if they.
They then need to glue the googly eyes into place, and from there can add any additional features that they like.
Check out a couple of the adorable scarecrow puppets that the kids made at school. The one on the left is the sample I made for them. I love the ones they made so much more. At the time I didn’t add clothing, but this would be a great additional step if you have more time at home, or for older kids.
