Paper Bag Unicorn Craft Supplies
I love that paper bag crafts like our Wonder Woman Paper Bag Puppet Craft require very little prep. Whether you pre-planned this activity or not, you can easily gather your supplies before starting.
You will need the following items:
Paper bags (brown or white)
Large googly eyes
Yellow cardstock paper
Scissors (these scissors work for right OR left handed kids)
Paper Bag Unicorn Craft Directions
First, glue on the googly eyes to the front of the paper bag as a reference. You can glue the eyes on last if you want (as our pictures show), but to make sure the mane and horn aren’t too low you may want to glue your eyes on first.
Add two dots for a nose near the mouth of the unicorn.
Add a smile to the puppet face.
Draw on the unicorn mane with colored markers. They can use any colors they like. We love flowing rainbow manes!
Draw an accent design on the front of the unicorn puppet.
Fold down the top corners of the paper bag.
Cut two triangles for ears and glue to the folded corners.
Cut out a large triangle and glue it to the center of the unicorn’s forehead to complete your unicorn puppet.
Play and have fun!
Encourage creativity by setting out supplies as an invitation to create. Let kids’ imaginations run wild as they design their unicorns and engage in pretend play with their homemade paper puppets. If your child loves craft projects, consider surprising them with a monthly craft box like this one.
This Unicorn paper bag puppet is fun and easy to do for an art center at home or in the classroom. It also makes a great craft activity for a play date or birthday party too!
