Easy Raccoon Craft for Kids
This craft was inspired by the original by I Heart Crafty Things. I just love the idea of using different material to create crafts. The newsprint she uses to create this raccoon is simply perfect! I change up my craft slightly and used a button for the nose. Check out her page for more craft ideas.
Grab your newsprint and cut out a large semi circle, tail and the head of the raccoon. The head is a triangle on the bottom and a semi circle on the top. Glue them down to a sheet of black construction paper.
Also cut out two ears. Glue those down as well.
Cut out black triangles smaller than the newspaper print ears as well as a black rectangle for the eye band of the raccoon. Cut out stripes for the raccoon tail. Glue all these down.
Glue down googley eyes on top of the black eye band. Grab a button and glue that down for the nose
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.

Make quiet time their favourite time!
Play is at the core of learning during the early years and it can take many forms. One of the most important of these is sensory play because it engages all of a child’s senses (taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing) and has a enoumous positive impact on brain development.
My Sensory Play Kits are a fun and easy way to keep your child engaged while at the same time capitalizing on the benefits of sensory play to nurture their mind!
