I grew up going to Disneyland because I had family nearby and my kids love it just as much as I did at their age. If you are planning a trip to one of the Disney parks, you can get ready for the trip by checking out my comprehensive guide – 33 Must-Know Tips for Going to Disneyland with Toddlers. Then get the kids excited by making a fun Mickey Mouse Paper Bag Puppet.
This is not the first time I have shared a Disney craft, and I know it won’t be the last! We love all things Disneyland. I have even dedicated an entire week to Disney crafts! From Moana’s raft to a toilet paper roll Minion craft, my kids had a blast re-creating their favorite characters and scenes from beloved Disney movies.
So grab your kids, get out your scissors and glue sticks and let me teach you how to make a Mickey Mouse Puppet.
Disney Mickey Mouse Paper Bag Puppet Craft
- Free Mickey Mouse paper bag puppet template
- Colored construction paper or cardstock (black, red, and yellow)
- Brown paper bag
- Glue stick
1. Download and print the free Mickey Mouse paper bag puppet template. Print the body, ears, eyes, nose, and head on black cardstock, pants and tongue on red cardstock, button on yellow cardstock, and face on white cardstock. Cut the template patterns all out nicely with scissors.
If you don’t have colored cardstock at home, you can print out all the template patterns on plain white printer paper and cut them all out. Then use the cutouts as stencils and trace them on colored construction paper. Finally, cut out all the traced patterns with scissors.
2. Glue the black body cutout to the base of the brown paper bag. Next, glue the red pants on the bottom side of the body. Then glue the the two yellow buttons on the pants.
3. For Mickey’s head, first glue the face cutout to the black head cutout. After the glue dries, glue the eyes, nose, and tongue cutouts to the face according to the picture below. Then glue the bottom of the two black ear cutouts to the back of the head cutout.
4. Glue Mickey’s head to the flap of the paper bag. Now you are finished with the Mickey Mouse puppet craft!
You might have noticed that this Mickey Mouse paper bag puppet resembles the older Mickey Mouse cartoons. The more current Mickey that you see in the Disney theme parks and cartoons these days have different eyes and a slightly different face shape. We love the old and new Mickey all the same!
