It’s not all about changing seasons and holidays around here. We’re also really excited to share this fun Aluminum Foil Paper Bag Robot Craft that’s great any time of year!
Some crafts just go together without a whole lot of effort, and this Aluminum Foil Paper Bag Robot Craft was one of those for us. Personally, I really like working with aluminum foil. It gives such a fascinating effect and you can easily mold it around any shape. Like our perfectly fall Aluminum Foil Owls Craft, our festive Aluminum Foil Stars, and these Foil Hearts Cards, all some really great ideas.
The main body for our Aluminum Foil Paper Bag Robot Craft is a brown paper lunch bag.
The rest of the supplies include heavy duty aluminum foil, because it’s easier to work with without ripping so much. Also, buttons in a variety of colors and sizes, a black marker, scissors, and glue.

- brown paper bag
- aluminum foil, heavy duty
- buttons – assorted colors and sizes
- black sharpie
- hot glue
Begin by trimming about 2 inches from the opening of the paper bag. This will just give the body more of a square shape.
For the head, take a sheet of aluminum foil and cut a rectangle wide enough to cover the flap of the bag, with enough length to double over. Wrap in place around the flap and glue to secure.
Form another square of aluminum foil just big enough to fit inside the body. Leave about ½” of the bag showing around the edge. Glue in place. Take buttons and glue in the square.
Form two long scrunched together pieces of aluminum foil for the arms. The more wrinkled the better. Glue in place between the side folds of the bag.
Glue in place two smaller lengths of aluminum foil for the antennae. Also glue two black buttons for the eyes. Draw on a mouth with marker.
