My five year old twins love making puppets. Paper bag puppets are fun to make, but they are an especially great craft project because once the puppets are made, kids can play with them. Puppets inspire all types of imaginative play, and I’m here for it! We all enjoy these Make Your Own Princess and Prince Puppets and I’m thrilled to share them with you.

Make Your Own Princess and Prince Puppets
These puppets are so fun to make. Once you’ve gathered supplies, kids color all the parts of the puppet, including the faces, bodies, and optional accessories.
The prince puppet and princess puppet each have accessories that kids can use to dress up their puppet and make them their own. The prince puppet has an additional sash, horn, and cat, while the princess puppet has a clutch, earrings, dog, and necklace. These are interchangeable and entirely optional. Your kids can make their puppets however they like.
After coloring, kids can cut out the pieces. My five year olds had difficulty cutting the detailed items out perfectly, so I had them cut out the general shapes.
Once the pieces are all cut out, it’s time to assemble the puppets! Use glue or a glue stick to attach the puppet pieces to the paper bag. The faces go on the bottom of the paper bag, which ends up being the top flap of the puppet, and the bodies go just under the flap. Accessories can be placed anywhere!
Now, it’s time to play with the puppets! Once the glue is dry, kids can act out any scene they can imagine.
Supplies needed to make your own princess and prince puppets
To make your own princess and prince puppets, you’ll need:
- paper bags: There are all different kinds available, but we just used regular brown paper lunch bags.
- coloring supplies: We used these markers (affiliate link) because of the variety of colors available. They’re new to us, but we really like them so far.
- child-safe scissors
- glue or glue sticks: I bought these glue sticks (affiliate link) in bulk some time ago and it’s been really convenient to have a large stash around.
