Paper Bag Otter CraftContributed by Leanne Guenther

This is an easy cut and paste paper craft for kids that uses a paper bag as a base to make an otter puppet.

Some info about otters:

There are thirteen different kinds of otters, but generally speaking they can be split into sea otters (marine mammals that spend most of their time in the oceans) and river otters (who spend time inland near and within rivers).

Sea otters often float on their backs, carrying a rock on their tummy which they use to crack open seashells to eat. All otters are carnivores (they eat meat).

Sea otters were nearly wiped out by hunting. Their fur is the thickest of any animal on earth which made it attractive during the fur trade.
