This paper bag whale craft is our second attempt at a paper bag craft. This ocean craft does take a little bit of effort to get the pieces put together so it may not be the ideal craft for a very young child or for one that gets frustrated easily (we have a great sock whale craft if you need an alternative).

What you'll need:

  • Two small brown paper bags
  • Two googly eyes
  • String
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Blue crayon
  • Blue pipe cleaner
  • Newspaper
How to make your kids whale craft:
  • Use your crayon and color both brown paper bags blue.
  • To make tail: crumple some newspaper and one of the paper bags halfway full. Tie the bag shut with some string.
  • To make the head: use your scissors to cut a slit in the bottom of the bag and a little bit up each side to create a mouth.
  • Place the loose end of the "tail" bag into the large opening (not your cut-out) of the "head" bag. Gather the head bag around the tail bag and use string to tie the head bag shut tightly around the tail bag.
  • Glue a googly eye on each side of the whale's head.
  • Cut the pipe cleaner into thirds and poke the pieces through the top of the whale's head to look like water.

Tissue Paper Fish Craft

We really liked this fish craft and it was perfect for summertime. The contact paper is the key to making this craft "toddler friendly" - no messy glue to contend with and it's easy for them to add the tissue paper all by themselves. The tissue paper makes the craft fun for small kids and the project has a great stained glass effect in the sunlight.
