Children color a groundhog template and glue it to a popsicle stick to create the puppet. To make the ground and sky, they simply glue brown paper to a blue piece of paper. This is a good project to do to reinforce the concepts of up and down as well as learn about Groundhog Day.

What you'll need:

  • Template of groundhog
  • Brown construction paper
  • Blue construction paper
  • Template of groundhog
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Brown crayon
  • Popsicle stick
