Rudolph and Santa Paper Bag Puppets

Paper bag puppets are super easy to make, and when you're done you can put on puppet shows that will keep kids of all ages entertained for at least a few days!!

All you need are paper lunch bags and a huge imagination and you are well on your way!!

**note**Make sure the lunch bag is upside down so that the flap is on top!!

For Santa, D spread glue on the bottom of the paper bag and pressed some cotton balls to make the beard. I cut a hat shape out of a piece of red construction paper, and he glued down some more cotton balls. I cut out and colored some eyes, and yes, he glued those down too.

For Rudolph, I traced D's hands (and part of his wrist!) on a piece of brown paper to make antlers, and D glued them to the back of the paper bag so they stuck out a little. I used the foam Q to cut out eyes and colored in pupils, and a red circle for Rudolph's nose. To add a little more "pizzazz" D sprinkled red glitter on to the nose.

Once the glue dries, put on a show!! Super fun for both parents and kids :)
