It’s been awhile since I’ve in-cooperated paper bags into our kid crafts, but after reading the children’s book Little Black Crow by Chris Raschka to my son – I had to change that immediately and make a fall themed craft in honor of the book. Hence how today’s blog post Paper Bag Crow was born!
Like all our kid friendly tutorials, this Crow is super simple to make, all while incooperating inexpensive supplies that are probably already in your home. It also includes little handprints, which is one of my favorite things to add to our crafts lately. Not to mention – when the craft is done, you have a puppet that can entertain kids beyond the craft itself! Ready to learn how to make this cute little bird with your child today? Let’s grab our supplies and get to work! #gluedtomycrafts
* Paper Bag
* Black Craft Paint
* White/Yellow/Black Cardstock
* School Glue
* White Chalk
* Paint Brush
* One Black Feather
* First trace your child’s hands on black cardstock, with chalk. Cut the traced handprints out.
* Next have your child paint the front of their paper bag, completely black. Once done, set aside to let it dry completely.
* Trim out some eyes and a nose for the crow out of your cardstock.
* To finish off the Paper Bag Crow craft, staple the handprints to the side of the paper bag and glue the eyes/nose onto the paper bag as well. Don’t forget to add the feather on top of the head!
