Song Information

Paper bag puppets are the perfect way to spend an afternoon crafting with kids with items around the house! After they create their favorite pets, you can use them as conversation starters to chat about what pets need to care for them or even take turns coming up with silly animal names. In the end, you can even put on a puppet show to showcase these new creations!
