Description:  Make the desired number of copies of the Porcupine Puppet on cardstock.  Using crayons or colored pencils, color the porcupine.  Use scissors to cut out the porcupine.  A circle punch can be used to make the finger holes.  If desired, make “quills” by cutting Q-tips in half and dipping the cotton ends in watercolors.  Glue the quills to the body of the porcupine.
Insert pointy finger and middle finger of one hand through the cut-out holes. These two fingers become the legs of the porcupine.  Using the porcupine puppet, retell the story A Porcupine’s Promenade or tell about the life of a porcupine in its habitat.
