Who says Groundhog’s Day can’t be fun?
I think the little guys are adorable and this past Groundhog Day, the kids and I made a craft to celebrate. Maybe your kids will find this fun too!
What you will need…
The small groundhog printable here, scissors, toilet paper tubes, crayons, popsicle sticks, glue stick, stapler and either extra printer paper or green construction paper.
It’s up to you whether you want your little ones to cut the groundhogs out or not but once they are cut, have your kiddos color them.
Cut a strip of paper and allow your little ones to color it green or you could use green construction paper, we didn’t have any at the time but it still turned out fine.
Once you have your “green” paper, measure around the toilet paper tube to ensure right size and cut appropriately, then help your little ones glue it around the tube like so.
As you can see, one of our groundhogs is blue because according to Landen, “The blue one is the boss”, so there you have it!
Next, slide your groundhog into the tube and staple on either side of the sick. This ensures that they don’t just fall out.
Now the little guys can play peek-a-boo and pop in and out to predict whether spring is coming early or not.
Have a great time making these guys!
