Groundhogs Day Craft

We had a fun Groundhogs Day in our home today. We made a craft after my oldest was back from school. (He was a little miffed we made Snow Ice Cream while he was in class yesterday).

Supplies needed:

-Styrofoam cup
-sharp kitchen knife
-Popsicle stick or tongue depressor
-green tissue paper, cut into 5" strips with fringe on the top
-small picture of a groundhog

First, cover the outside of the Styrofoam cup with glue.

Spread the tissue paper over the cup and smooth out the bubbles.

Using the knife, make a slit in the bottom of the cup just big enough for the stick to slide through. (I did this part, but the kids did all the rest)

Colour the groundhog picture.

Cut around the picture, and glue it to the top of the Popsicle stick.

Slide the stick down into the cup and out the bottom. Then the kids can pull the stick down to make the groundhog hide in his hole, and push the stick up to pop the groundhog out so he can look for his shadow.
Cute, eh?
