Here’s the next Floyd and the Irresistible Cookie Activity. If you missed them, we've already worked on Irresistible Cookie ornaments and word puzzles. Give them a try!
Today, it's Floyd, Tiny and Larue Paper Bag Puppets! Play along with the book or video using these fun and easy puppets...
First, you’ll need a flat-bottomed paper bag like a lunch bag for each puppet. Gift bags work fine, too, if you cut the handles off. I got some little paper bags from the craft store where they also sell them in different colors. Just about any size will work as long as you can fit your hand inside and it’s not too huge.
Next, you’ll need to print off the puppet patterns shown below. Card stock works the best, or use regular paper like I did. FYI- There is one paws pattern sheet to use for all three dogs. If you’re making Larue and Tiny, you don’t need the tail because they are Pembroke Welsh Corgis (No tails! Floyd is a Cardigan Welsh Corgi: the corgi with a tail.).

Next, cut out all of the pattern parts. Little kids might want to get some help with this step from bigger kids or grown-ups.
Finally, get your paper bag and use a glue stick to attach the pieces as shown on the directions sheet below (click on the link to download a full-size easy-to-read printable).
Hope you have fun with this puppet craft! It's officially Floyd-Approved!
