As it's Summer and we are making the most of having some family time, I thought I would do a "quickie post" for today:
Mally turned 4 in June! Among his MANY birthday presents this year, he received this Paper Bag Puppet Kit by Artzooka! from his Aunty Ruby. A great opportunity to get some easy but absorbing crafting in! Just what we needed when his mum and dad needed to recuperate from the celebrations!
The kit comes complete with 4 paper bags, and all of the "body parts" you need to make the different puppets. It also comes with double sided sticky tape but Mally found this too fiddly (his mum too!) and so we opted for a good old glue stick!
And that's all there is to it! The best part is that we are now inspired to use our own bags and make up some completely new characters!!
NB: All Opinions are my own - this was a voluntary post not known to, or requested by Artzooka!
