  • 1.

    Follow these easy steps to make a bear puppet—or invent your own way to decorate a lunch bag!

  • 2.

    Draw fur. Use your Crayola® Markers to draw fur on your paper bag. Lay it upside down, with the open end facing you. Layer several different colors of brown to create realistic fur.

  • 3.

    Make a snout. Tear a large, U-shaped snout out of white paper. Use Crayola School Glue to stick it under the folded bag bottom. Draw fur on it, too. Tear a large triangular nose out of black paper. Glue it to the bottom of the white snout. With Crayola Gel Markers, draw two eyes above the snout.

  • 4.

    Add ears. Tear two smaller U-shaped ears out of white paper. Draw fur on them, too. Tear black paper into two small pieces. Glue them to the center of each ear. Glue the ears to the back of your puppet’s head.

  • 5.

    Create front legs. Tear two front legs from white paper. Draw fur on them. Tear out five small round pads for each paw (10 altogether). Glue the pads on the bear’s paws. Tear five pointy claws for each paw. Glue them to the ends of the finger pads.

  • 6.

    Glue on yarn. Finish your puppet by gluing precut brown yarn around the bear’s face. (Use rug yarn or ask an adult to cut the yarn for you.) Air-dry the glue before you play with your puppet.
