R Is for Raccoon Craft

title graphic for R Is for Raccoon ABC Craft

Watch out for this week’s ABC Craft! In the blink of a googly eye, our cute masked bandit will steal your little one’s heart—and teach about the letter R at the same time.

Here’s What You’ll Need

Instructions for Assembling Your Letter R Craft

  1. Print the R Is for Raccoon Craft templates.
  2. Cut out the templates and trace the letter R and the raccoon tail, tail stripes, ears, nose, and eye mask onto card stock.
  3. Cut out the letter R and the raccoon body parts.
  4. Glue the letter R onto a full sheet of card stock (we used blue, but you can use any color you like).
  5. Glue the tail stripes onto the tail and attach it to the letter R, tucking it under the edge of the letter.
  6. Attach the ears, nose, and eye mask to the letter R.
  7. Affix two googly eyes to the raccoon’s eye mask.

Learning with Your Letter R Craft

As you and your child assemble your R Is for Raccoon Craft, practice saying /r/–/r/–raccoon together. You can find more tips for working on pre-reading skills with your preschooler in this handy download.

Yes, we will have a lowercase ABC craft series, but not until summer of next year.

However, we do have some ABC activities that do include lower case letters. Check out:

When we do release our lowercase craft series, we will be sure to announce through our newsletter, on our blog, and on our Facebook page!
