Paper Bag Puppets

The Littlest Apple was given this Alex Toys Little Hands Paper Bag Puppet Kit to keep him entertained while he was recovering post-surgery.  This all-inclusive kit contains everything you need to make five adorable animal puppets: five paper bags, over 260 stickers, punch outs, and a glue stick.

I figured we would save this kit until The Littlest Apple got home from the hospital, but honestly, I wish I had brought this kit TO the hospital with us, because by the time The Littlest Apple was released from the hospital, he was too full of energy to sit still for much of anything.  When my sister in law came to visit last week, we broke out the puppet kit and got crafty.  The Littlest Apple lasted all of 5 minutes, mostly interested in smelling the glue stick (which DID smell nice!) and using the glue stick on anything and everything.  But my sister in law and I REALLY had fun with this kit!  Admittedly, these aren’t open-ended projects, but they are so much fun to put together, and all of those stickers are addictive!  The paper bag puppets are so bright and colorful, and The Littlest Apple has enjoyed playing with them (now that we’ve done all of the work!).

We still have the cow to make, but we completed the elephant, bird, frog and lion.

Cute, right?  I would definitely recommend this Paper Bag Puppet Kit or any of the other Alex Toys arts and crafts kits if you’re looking for an all-in-one gift for a preschooler.

Have you tried any Alex Toys arts and crafts kits?

Disclosure: I was not paid for this review.  This is just a product my family enjoyed that I wanted to share!

    I haven’t tried the craft kits yet, but I love Alex Tub Stickers. They have a lot of cute ones, we have the city and I bought the “paper dolls” for a friend’s bday. I love that they don’t retain water and get moldy like most other tub toys!

  2. Carrie,

    I was just talking to The Littlest Apple this morning about his tub toys. He was saying that he’s “too big” for our current toys. Time for an update, and those stickers sound great! I’ll definitely be checking those out. Thanks for the suggestion!

  3. I saw your wreath and was just browsing. BUT they have this really awesome HUGE double sized mega box of all of those crafts. We love them toO! we did 2 of them today. We love the sock puppets and the collages are so much fun! My son has cerebral palsy so he isn’t that great with a glue stick but he still loves these.

  4. Great post.Keep it update.
