Paper Bag Frankenstein Craft for Kids

We can’t seem to get enough of paper bag Halloween crafts lately. So far we’ve made a bat and witch and now I have this fun Paper Bag Frankenstein Craft to share with you today. Just like our other paper bag crafts, the Frankenstein is especially fun for kids since they can put their hand in the bag and use it as a puppet. Make sure to stick around and browse more of our Halloween Crafts while you are here.


Supplies you will need:

  • paper lunch bag
  • green paint
  • black and gray cardstock paper (you can also use a black marker)
  • googly eyes
  • scissors
  • tacky glue


1. Start by painting the front of your paper bag with your green paint. Set it aside to dry completely.

2. While your paper bag is drying cut out pieces for your Frankenstein: hair, eyebrows, mouth, scar pieces and bolts.

3. Use your tacky glue to glue your pieces onto your paper bag. This can be a little bit tricky since the bag has to stay open. I put my hand inside the bag to stable it while gluing on the pieces. You could also opt to use a black marker to draw on the facial features.
