My two-year-old, Edie, loves Finding Nemo, so we’re really excited for Finding Dory to come out this summer. To start the fun a little early, we made this Dory snack bag that she can take to the movie and fill with her favorite treats. Best part, it’s all made from a regular brown paper sandwich bag and a few craft supplies you probably have around the house.

Supplies: 

Brown paper lunch bag

Yellow craft felt

Twisty tie

Navy blue card stock paper

Large googly-eyed ball

Craft glue

Thin rope

Scissors

Sequins, glitter, other trinkets

 

Directions: 

FINDNG DORY: DIY FUN FISH CRAFT

1. Take your brown paper bag and cut along the middle of one side about two-thirds of the way.

2. At the bottom of the bag, fold the edges in to make a more rounded Dory head.

3. Cinch the top of the bag (which will be Dory’s tail). We’ll add a twisty tie and yellow felt at the end when it’s all decorated.

This is adorable, and a good way to use those paper bags, if you have any.
