Groundhog Day Craft


This Groundhog Day craft for kids is simple for them to make, and uses supplies you probably already have on-hand. Perfect for some last-minute fun to celebrate Groundhog Day! My kids enjoyed using a flashlight with these brown bag puppets to recreate the scene as Punxutawney saw his shadow to predict 6 more weeks of Winter. (6 more weeks?? Ack!) Here’s how to make some adorable groundhog puppets of your own!

Simple Groundhog Day Craft for Kids

To make a groundhog puppet of your own, you will need:

Step 1:

Cut out the shapes from construction paper. A brown heart (upside down) works well for the groundhog’s face). Cut out ears, bow ties, and a nose from black construction paper.

Step 2:

Invite your kids over to make a groundhog puppet! Start by gluing on the nose to the face.¬†Use a black marker to draw a mouth. Use a white chalk marker to draw whiskers and teeth. Add the googly eyes. Glue the face to the paper bag, and add the ears. Draw facial expressions, if desired….hee hee!

Step 3:

Cut a mini doily in half to form the shirt collar. Glue the shirt collar to the paper bag and use glue to attach the paper bow tie for a nice finishing touch!

Step 4:

Use a flashlight to re-create Punxutawney Phil seeing his shadow (or not) during Groundhog Day as a puppet show!

Have fun!!
