When we read the story of “Joseph and the Coat of Many Colors“, we make this cute and easy-to-make Joseph puppet.
Use a brown paper lunch bag as the puppet and have children decorate a face with markers or crayons.
Purchase some rainbow-colored fabric (get remnants whenever possible) and cut the fabric into pieces about the size to fit on a brown paper lunch bag. Have the children glue the rainbow fabric onto the puppet for Joseph’s coat.
If you don’t want to go to the expense of buying fabric, you can use colored construction paper instead. Cut different colors of construction paper into strips and have children glue the colored strips on the bag. You would need to make the paper strips about one inch narrow and cut them as long as needed for your paper bags.
