Logan loves his news bear paper bag puppets! For patterns and directions to make these adorable bear puppets go to daniellesplace.com

Logan, a two year old, made these puppets with his dad. He enjoyed gluing on the face features, and hands and feet.

This craft requires a lot of detailed puppet parts that need to be cut out before young children can participate. But young children will enjoy gluing the parts onto the puppet and playing with the completed puppets.

This craft is a great way to teach children big and small concepts. It also helps them improve their hand-eye coordination with the manipulation of the puppets.
