2. Next, glue a square of paper to match the tail color. Trim off any excess from the paper bag puppet.

3. After that, color the seashells purple or orange (or whatever your favorite color is). And then glue them on your mermaid paper bag puppet.

4. Next, cut out and trace the hair on your desired color of card stock paper. Then, glue them on the top of your paper bag.

5.  After that, cut out her eyes and glue them on as well.

6. We decided to color her nose and glue that on, but you can cut and trace it on pink card stock paper as well.

7. With a black marker, add her smile and her scales.

8. Finally, cut the star from the mermaid template and trace it on card stock paper. Then glue it to her hair.
