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.
