I have one preschooler and one toddler, and they both love crafts. I have grand intentions to have a plethora of available craft projects every day, but it doesn't always happen. Our latest project was super easy and a big hit - so of course, I have to share it!
We didn't have a chance to see Big Hero 6 when it was released in theaters last year, but since the film was released on Blu-ray and DVD earlier this week, we finally got to see it. I didn't have really high expectations because I knew almost nothing about it, but I really enjoyed it! And I knew that that kids would get such a big kick out of the movie's lovable health companion robot, Baymax.
We decided to make a paper bag puppet Baymax, since that's the sort of craft a preschooler typically enjoys! A quick trip to Walmart produced all the supplies we needed for this project.
Baymax Paper Bag Puppet
-White Paper Lunch Bag
-Big Hero 6 movie to entertain you while crafting (optional!)
-Free Printable Baymax Puppet File - which you can download here!
Step 1. Download and print the Baymax Puppet on white cardstock.
Step 2. Cut out the pieces!
3. Use glue stick to attach pieces to the paper bag. Make sure the flap on the bag is facing up so that you can move his head after it is attached! The order we glued the pieces on was legs, arms, tummy, face.
And that's it! Super simple, super cute. Lincoln and Addie were both very into this project and wanted to get the glue in all the right places.
Lincoln is not confident with scissors yet, so I cut the pieces out for him. But, this craft is great for letting young kids practice their cutting skills, as well as their fine motor skills with gluing and placing the pieces on the bag.
After our craft was done, between the two kids, the two puppets, and our friendly Baymax plush (found at Walmart.com), there was a ton of flying superhero action going on in our house!
They were both so excited to show their daddy the craft we made! If we ever have a Big Hero 6 birthday party, this is definitely a craft I will return to and use again. It was super simple!
We had a grand time creating our craft, and the kids recognize Baymax everywhere we go!
We found a Walmart exclusive gift set, which includes a gift with purchase digital copy (while supplies last). Your purchase of the Big Hero 6 Blu-Ray/DVD + Gift With Purchase Set includes a digital movie on Vudu while supplies last! Simply scan your receipt using the Savings Catcher in the Walmart app. Then look for a message on your phone or email. Now you can watch Big Hero 6 on any device! So much fun. I found the scientific concepts in this movie so fascinating - I could totally see Lincoln building awesome stuff in our garage someday, just like Hero!
Lincoln hasn't actually watched the movie yet, but he keeps saying "I like Baymax! He saves the day!" so I think a family movie night may be in order sometime pretty soon.
