Lay the paper bag on your desk so that the folded bottom is facing up. Cut the bag off about an inch below the folded bottom.
Unfold the bag and cut a U-shaped opening on one side.
To shape the cave or burrow, place the bag so that one side rests flat on the table and the side with the U-shaped opening rests at an angle.
Create and cut out plants and animals to decorate the scene.
Adult supervision is recommended when children use scissors.
