Tuesday Tot Craft Time: Puppets

This is a fun and easy craft for the kids, making paper bag puppets.  The library provided us with white paper bags, construction paper, scissors, glue, crayons, feathers, pom poms, and contact paper cut into different shapes.  Right away my son said that he wanted to make a turkey.
We cut out a large brown heart out of the construction paper, and then cut it in half for the wings.  The hand print contact paper was perfect for the under the beak red thing (whatever it is called).  I also used the contact paper to cut out a smile.  My son used pom poms for the eyes, and he colored the wings.
For the tail we used a hand and flower cut out of the contact paper, and just layered them.  He put the feathers under the finger tips instead of using glue.
Then he colored both sides of the bag / puppet.
He had a lot of fun playing with his new turkey puppet.
