How To Make A Groundhog Craft Puppet
- Plastic or paper cup
- Popsicle stick
- Printable (download below)
- Crayons/markers, optional
Get Printable – To make this adorable groundhog craft, you’ll start by printing out the free printable below. We have a colored version or a black and white version. If you print the black and white version, you can let the kids color their own.
Cut out the grass and the groundhog and one head accessory and set them aside.
Cut – Puncture the bottom of the cup with your scissors, making a hole big enough for your popsicle stick.
Assemble – Flip your cup right-side-up and tape your grass around the outside so that it is slightly taller than the cup. Slide your popsicle stick through the hole, then tape your groundhog face to the top of the stick.
Final Touches – Finally, tape the bow or hat to the top of the groundhog’s head and you’re all done!
Play – You can slide the popsicle stick up and down to have the groundhog play hide and seek just like Punxsutawney Phil does on Groundhog Day! This really is the best craft activity to celebrate the holiday.
