paper bag whaleStuffed Paper Bag Whale


  • paint - blue or grey (poster or acrylic paints all work well)
  • paper lunch bag
  • newspaper
  • blue construction paper
  • elastic band or masking tape
  • scotch tape
  • glue,
  • black marker
  • Optional: wiggly eyes


  • stuff paper bag with shredded newspaper, leaving about 3 inches unstuffed
  • Scrunch the top together and wrap an elastic band or masking tape around to seal.
    • The stuffed part is the body of the whale.
    • The end (top of the bag) is the tail.
  • paint the paper bag, including the tail, a whale colour (blue or grey). I never paint the bottom of the whale (the tummy).
  • While your bag is drying...
  • Cut out flipper shapes from the blue construction paper

    flipper shape 

  • Cut a rectangle from the blue construction paper and cut slits in it (see the dotted lines below)


  • Roll the piece around a pencil and tape it to make a tube (the spout of the whale)

Once the bag is dry:

  • Scotch tape or glue the flippers to the paper bag (I usually glue them to the tummy).
  • You can poke a hole in the top of the bag with a pencil and squish the bottom of the spout in there and then apply scotch tape as needed.
  • Use a black marker to draw on eyes and a nose (or use wiggly eyes or round stickers).



Paper Plate Whale

This adorable whale craft uses a printable template and a paper plate to make a project suitable for an ocean animals, mammals, or letter W theme or just for fun.

plate whaleMaterials:

  • grey or blue paint and paintbrush (or you can use your imagination and paint your whale any colour you wish)
  • paper plate
  • something to colour with
  • scissors,
  • glue,
  • paper,
  • printer.


  • Paint the bottom of the paper plate blue or grey (or whatever colour you would like to use).
  • Print out the template of choice.
  • Colour (where appropriate) and cut out the template pieces. Most of the pieces are simple enough shapes for young children to cut out.
  • Using the template piece as a guide, cut off the bottom quarter of the plate.
  • Glue the pieces to the plate to make a whale:
    • Glue the triangle on the bottom of the plate and the leftover piece of plate to the tip of the triangle to form a tail. You might want to add a piece of thin cardboard to the back of the tail to make it a bit less floppy.
    • Glue the water spout onto the top of the head.
    • Glue the eye onto the edge opposite the tail.
    • Draw a mouth under the eye (the template has an example of what the mouth might look like).
