Leprechaun Paper Bag Puppet Craft for Kids

Remember making puppets in grade school using paper bags? It’s such a fun classic craft for kids! I love it too so I had to make one for St Patrick’s Day. Using the template below makes this a quick prep craft you can do with your kids any time. All you need is the template, crayons or color pencils, scissors, glue and a lunch paper bag.

This is a great activity for preschooler, kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade. Older elementary grades can definitely still enjoy too! When I was teaching, paper bag crafts were always a hit with my students. They thought it was so funny to turn a bag unto a puppet and asked to make one all the time.

Start by printing the leprechaun template below. For personal use only.

Then, color the Leprechaun and cut out the pieces. Younger kids may need help cutting some pieces like the shoes an arms. Last step is gluing the pieces onto the paper bag. That’s it! Now your child can play with their paper bag puppet Leprechaun for St Patrick’s Day!

Don’t have a paper bag? No problem. Color the template and cut it out. Then piece it together on a construction paper or card stock. While it doesn’t make it a puppet, it’s still a cute Leprechaun craft. For toddlers, try giving them the pieces already colored in and mixed up for them to put in the right order kind of like a puzzle.

I hope you love this craft idea and try it with your kids. If you do, share it on social media and tag me so I can see it! Find me on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
