How To Make a Bag Puppet:

Step 1: Design a hound dog. The bottom of the bag will become the top of the dog's head.

Step 2: Color big spots on the bag.

Step 3: Use the crease of the bag for a mouth. Cut out a pink felt tongue and glue it inside the crease.

Put on a show, and have your puppet sing "Hound Dog."
