Our paper bag puppet crafts have been so popular that we knew we had to create one, especially for Easter or Spring. Since she did a beautiful job on the leprechaun paper bag, I asked my 16-year-old daughter to create a bunny. She did a phenomenal job (again) on this bunny paper bag craft, and I know you guys will LOVE this one too!
When making a paper bag craft, we know that figuring out the shapes and cutting out all of the little pieces can be super tedious and take too long. So we create a printable template for you to print, cut out the shapes and use those shapes as a template to cut out the construction paper. Easy peasy! You can save the template pieces for the following year as well!
We love how this bunny paper bag turned out, and we are excited to share it with you. It’s perfect for your home, a classroom, Girl Scout troops, or even a religious group. No matter where you decide to use it, make sure to have fun with it!
I have a couple of tips that we figured out as we put these together. First, if you have to cut out more than one of a specific shape, fold your paper so that you only have to cut once.
We find that printing the template out on cardstock is better. That will be thicker and easier to use as a template if you plan to use the templates to make more than one bunny paper bag puppet.
We used a glue stick, but you can also use double-sided tape or liquid glue. Whatever you have in the house will do!
We hope that your family loves this bunny paper bag template that we put together for you. The best part about it is that it’s a free downloadable file, so you can print off as many as you need. We hope to create another spring animal next year, so don’t forget to keep an eye out for that.
Once your little ones have finished their bunny paper bag, if you post a photo on social media, we’d love for you to tag @thesupermomlife and encourage others to join in the fun!

Ready to Put it Together?
- Print out your free printable bunny paper bag template. I like to print ours on card stock to be more stable, but you can also use regular paper. Ensure that your printer settings say “actual size” so that the template pieces are printed out in the correct size.
- Cut out each piece on the printable template. Make sure that you cut out the correct number of pieces (for example, you’ll need 2 feet, hands, feet pads, and toe pads. A little hack I use is folding the construction paper before I start cutting so that I have all of the pieces I need and only have to cut each shape once.
- Using your template pieces, cut your shapes out of construction paper. We used white, brown, and pink, but I would encourage you to allow your kids to get creative with colors.
- Make sure the bottom of the paper bag is folded on the top. Flip it over and attach the ears to the top.
- Flip the bag back around. Attach the belly, two feet, and two hands.
- Attach the pink parts of the ears. You may need to tuck these between the bag and the larger part of the ears.
- Attach the nose, the toe pads, and the feet pads.
- Stick on the googly eyes. I buy the ones that have the adhesive on the back already. But if you don’t have those handy, you can use tape (or glue)!
- Draw the whiskers.
- Flip the bag over and attach the cottontail.
