How To Make A Groundhog Stick Puppet

MATERIALS –

DIRECTIONS –

  1. Start by cutting a strip of green construction paper that is slightly taller than the cup. And it should be long enough to wrap all the way around the cup.
  2. Using scissors, snip fridge on one long edge of the green construction paper to make the grass.
  3. With help from an adult, poke a hole in the bottom of the cup using scissors, making sure it’s large enough for the popsicle stick to fit through.
  4. Wrap the green construction paper tightly around the cup, taping the two ends together.
  5. Using the brown paper, black paper, and googly eyes – create the groundhog’s face.
  6. Add a mouth and some teeth with markers or crayons.
  7. Attach the groundhog’s face to the popsicle stick by taping it to the back.
  8. Push the popsicle stick through the hole from the top of the cup to finish your groundhog stick puppet!
