We are big fans of paper bag crafts for kids here but I have to admit that this princess craft was my four year olds idea! We’d spent the morning making things (house like a bomb site as you can imagine) when she decided she wanted a princess craft of her own. I think I’ll have to get her creations ideas written down more often as this princess is super sweet and great for practising scissor skills. What’s more once they were dry they were excellent for playing with too – what’s not to love?!
To make your paper bag princess craft for kids you will need:
Felt tip pens
Coloured paper or card
Let’s make it:
First cut some coloured paper into long strips, it doesn’t matter if the strips are a bit wonky as I think this makes it look more like normal hair anyway. Stick the coloured hair to the top of the paper bag with a few strands on each side.
Next cut out a crown from coloured card ensuring that it’s big enough to stretch across the whole length of your princesses head. Everyone knows that princesses need lots of sparkly and shiny things so gem stickers are the perfect way to decorate and they’re a good way to encourage fine motor skills too.
Finally draw on your princesses face. I can’t believe the concentration on my daughters face as she did this but she wanted to get it right sooo badly! She’s only just turned four so the skills needed to draw are still fairly new to her and she was super pleased with her princesses face. There would be more pictures of her actually making it but she wanted to sit on my lap while she made her princess and who am I to turn down a cuddle?
She was really pleased that I chose to copy her princess craft for kids and share it here too – apparently my one is the queen and her’s is the princess. Either way once the glue on our paper bags had dried she had a really good time making a puppet show with them as they battled the zombie my son had made.
