Make a Paper Bag Dog

Paper Bag Dog

You can make a Dalmatian type dog like the one in the picture or use different colors for a grey, brown, tan or black dog.  Or even your own Peggylicious dog with floppy ears!

You will need:

  • two sheet of white A4 paper
  • a printer
  • some crayons
  • scissors
  • glue
  • paper for the printer

Optional:

  • big wiggly eyes

Print and cut out the templates show below.

  • Paint the paper bag in your chosen colour and let it dry
  • Glue the muzzle (upside down heart shape) onto the had.  It  should overlap the body a bit.
  • Glue the nose onto the head.  It should overlap the muzzle a bit.
  • Glue the eyes onto the head above the nose.  If you like, you can use wiggly eyes instead of the paper template pieces.
  • Glue the ears onto the sides of the head
  • Glue the tongue so you can see part of the circle sticking out from under the muzzle.
  • Glue two whiskers (long, thin rectangle pieces) onto either side of the muzzle.
  • Glue as many spots as you like to the puppet.  You can put them on the front, back, ears or face.
  • Glue the arms onto the back
  • Fold the tail in half (so it’s colored on both sides).  Fold the dotted line tab and use this to glue the tail onto the back giving it a 3D effect.
  • Glue as many of the extra spots as you like to the puppet.  You can put them on the arms, front, back, ears or face.
