Print our groundhog template. Cut it out and then glue it to a piece of lightweight cardboard to give it some strength.
Let your child paint the groundhog brown with a toothbrush.
Once the groundhog is dry, cut it out of the cardboard piece.
Print the template out again. Cut it out and trace it onto a piece of black construction paper and cut that out as well. The black groundhog piece will be his shadow.
Lay the groundhog's shadow under the painted groundhog and push a brad through towards its tail-end.
