Feed the animals each time you throw away the trash with these animal litter bags crafts. These handy litter bags are decorated to look like animals. Kids will have a great time decorating these bags with their favorite animal faces.

What You'll Need:

  • Stapler
  • Paper grocery bags
  • Scissors
  • Crayons or markers
  • Construction paper
  • Tape or glue
  • Work gloves

How to make the animal litter bag craft:

Step 1: Staple the top of a large grocery bag closed.

Step 2: On the plain side of the paper bag, cut out a large opening that will be the mouth of your animal. Be sure the mouth is high enough on the bag so it will still hold trash.

Step 3: Color eyes, ears, nose, and feet on the bag to look like any animal you choose. If you'd like, use construction paper and cut out shapes for the body parts. Tape or glue them onto the bag in the proper places.

You can also cut strips of paper for fur or a mane, and glue them to the bag. Use your imagination -- your creation doesn't have to be an animal you've ever seen before.

Step 4: When your animal is completed, put on your work gloves and walk around your yard or neighborhood. Pick up litter, and put it in the bag through the animal's mouth. Don't pick up any broken glass, needles, or other dangerous materials.

You'll become an animal detective after finishing the craft in the next section. Keep reading to learn about the animal track stamps craft.
