Handprint Raccoon!

The theme this week is the color brown.
Project: Handprint Raccoon - The original idea for this craft is a raccoon puppet, but I didn't have any brown paper lunch sacks, so we just adapted the craft instead. I saw this idea in the October/November 2009 issue of The Mailbox Magazine
Directions: Trace each hand on black construction paper and trace a shoe print on brown construction paper. Cut out the tracings. Cut a front panel of a brown paper bag to size and glue it onto construction paper. Glue the hand and shoe print (the tail) cut outs to the paper bag. Then cut out simple eye, nose, and paw cutouts - I used black and brown construction paper. Glue the eyes, nose and paws onto the raccoon. Finally, draw stripes on the shoe cutout and other details on the raccoon.
Materials Needed: construction paper, black and brown construction paper, brown paper bag, scissors, glue stick, pencil, crayons/markers
