Paper Bag Duck Puppet Craft

Duck puppet made from paper bag

This Paper Bag Duck Puppet is the latest in our series of Farm Animal Puppets.  The kids will enjoy making these puppets and then create fun plays and playtime with them. Remember puppets have proven to be a good way for some kids to talk about things that are happening.


It is believed that the earliest puppets probably originated in Egypt, where ivory and clay articulated puppets have been discovered in tombs. Source: Theater Seat Store – History of Puppetry and Puppet Theater

  • Card Stock or Heavy White Paper
