Design #1-Brown Paper Bag
Brown Paper Bag
Construction Paper for Bunny Ears and Nose
Cotton Balls for Tail
Using construction paper cut out shape of bunny ears and a full rounded heart shape for the bunny nose. You can use two colors for the bunny ears, we used pink outer ear and white inner ear.
Glue white ear on pink ear
Glue on nose
Glue on cut felt strips for whiskers
Glue on Googly Eyes
Glue cotton balls on back of bag and you have a paper bag bunny rabbit hand puppet!
You can also draw all of these items as well; Eyes, nose, whiskers. Children can color the brown paper bag, use glitter, paint the bag, or cut and glue pieces which is what we did.
Design #2-Construction Paper Bunny Rabbit Hand Puppet
Take a full piece of construction paper and fold it over on each side to make a long rectangular shape.
Glue this shape so that it holds the shape
Fold that shape in half
Fold one of the 1/2 pieces back on itself
Do the same with the other side, the goal is to get a square shape with pockets
Once you have this shape, start decorating your bunny rabbit; eyes, nose, ears, tongue, whiskers, etc.
Decorations can be drawn on or glued on using construction paper
