Since the beaver is our animal of the week, our craft is a beaver puppet! It’s super easy and only takes a few items.
Supplies you will need:
- Paper bag
- Construction paper
When using paper bags, I always cut the bottom off. This makes them work well for little arms.
Cut a circle out of the brown paper for the head. Then cut two ears out of the same brown paper.
Cut a mustache shape out of the tan paper for the beaver’s cheeks. Then cut two smaller ears out of the same tan paper to give the ears another layer.
Cut the eyes, nose, and whiskers out of the black paper. Then cut a square out of the white paper to be the teeth and circles to be the eyes.
Glue it all together.
Give the beaver some details. Draw a line on the teeth to make it look like buck teeth. Add spots on his cheeks to give him some whisker spots.
While beavers live in wetlands, I wouldn’t recommend placing this beaver in one as he is made entirely out of paper.
