Disney’s Encanto is has been a big hit with kids of all ages! The music of the Madrigal family is sung over and over again in houses everywhere (sometimes it can even be too much singing at our house). You will love to make this Encanto paper bag puppet craft!
If you haven’t seen the movie yet, here’s a quick recap of the Encanto movie. The Madrigals live in a magical house and each of the family members have their own superpowers sparked by a magical candle. They live in a small town in the mountains of Colombia. One day, the little girl Mirabel, discovers she is the only one in her family without a special power. She is on a mission to save the miracle and help her family.
Whether you are throwing an Encanto party (which I think will be very popular) or are looking for playful puppet crafts to inspire pretend play, this Disney Encanto Mirabel puppet craft is sure to be a hit!
