Rabbit Paper Bag Puppet Craft
We thought we would make some of these rabbit paper bag puppets after reading the book Rabbit & Robot together. Rabbit & Robot is an early chapter book that celebrates differences within an unlikely friendship. Rabbit and Robot must navigate through a series of compromises to make their sleepover work.
After reading the story, these paper bag puppets are a fun way for students to re-enact the story! To get started, gather the simple materials you will need.
How to Make the Paper Bag Rabbit
Begin by cutting out 2 rabbit ears from the white paper. Then, invite the students to attach the rabbit’s ears to the paper bag with glue or tape. They might want to add some pink marker to the inside of the ears for a fun detail!
Teacher Tip: To save time, especially if you’re working with multiple students, you may want to have the ears pre-cut and ready to go.

Using a black fine tip marker, students can add facial features like eyes and a mouth. They can use their pink marker again to add a pink nose!
In just a few minutes, your puppet will be ready for play time!
Place the puppet on your hand and get ready to host your own version of Rabbit & Robot. These bunny paper bag puppets would be the perfect easy craft for Easter too!
