Today I’m sharing this super cute coati craft. The coati is a neat animal that lives in Central and South America, and is closely related to the raccoon! Lorelai found this one in her animal encyclopedia and asked me to make her the template. With its ringed tail and long, pointy nose, this animal is pretty adorable. The printable comes with darkened stripes on the tail. Just paint those the darker color. Grab the template below and enjoy!!
