    After we read The Kissing Hand, my students made racoon puppets out of paper bags.

    First, I used a permanent marker to draw some basic parts on white paper. I drew 2 eyes (with a dark, filled in circle for the classic racoon eyes) a nose, 2 arms, and 2 ears.

    Then I photocopies them on white cardstock. The kids cut them out and I assisted with gluing. All the kids had wonderful racoons when they were done. The kids LOVED it and they had something really cute to bring home the first day.

    Make a model and tell the kids that it is shy to come out--but that it whispers to you that it will come out if they only have out their scissors and glue. They love to finally see the racoon as it comes out.
