How long does this paper bag craft take to make?
Honestly, not that long at all. The longest part of this craft is trying to be patient while the paint is drying! (and this can be hard for both adults and kids!)
What if I don’t have any puffy paint?
Don’t fret, if you don’t have puffy paint at home, improvise! You can use regular paint if needed just know it won’t have the same texture as puffy paint does. Or, you can make your own puffy paint by adding a bit of shaving cream to regular paint.
You’ll have a blast creating this adorable paper bag puppet! Make them in time for the movie and take them with you while you watch it!
