Pencil or Pen
Brown Paper Bag
First things first - lay the paper bag on a flat surface, with the bottom flap facing you. Just envision that the smaller rectangle area is the face and the larger portion is his body.
Now grab your RED craft paint and squirt a small amount on the paper plate.
Use the paint brush to paint the LARGER part of the paper bag completely red. This will be his clothing/body.
When done painting, set aside the paper bag till later.
Now grab your cowboy hat printable, that you printed on LIGHT BROWN cardstock paper, along with the scissors.
Trim out the hat design and discard excess paper.
Now grab your sheet of white cardstock paper, as well as a pencil.
Trace BOTH of your hands and trim them out. This is now the cowboy's beard.
Next up - cut out a small oval for the nose out of the remaining cardstock paper.
Now we are ready to finish up the cowboy lunch sack puppet craft. Grab your painted paper bag, all the paper pieces and your choice of adhesive.
Go ahead and start off by gluing the handprint beard cutouts, in place, right on the fold of the paper bag. You will want the fingertips facing outward.
Follow that up with the hat and then the oval nose on top of that.
And that's it on this Paper Bag Cowboy craft! Go ahead and add any other embellishments before you display/play with him proudly for all to see!
BTW - just gently stick your hand inside the decorated brown paper bag to make it into a puppet!
