It’s almost time for one of the downright silliest holidays of the year – Groundhog Day. Celebrate this year with Groundhog Day Puppets. On February 2nd of each year we hold our breaths as everyone’s favorite groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, sees his shadow (or not). If it is cloudy and the groundhog does NOT see his shadow then spring is supposed to come early. However, if it is sunny, and the groundhog DOES see his shadow then winter weather will continue for 6 more weeks.
Groundhog Day Puppets Craft
We made cute little Groundhog Day puppets this year using construction paper, brown paper bags, glue, and scissors.
To make your own puppet cut a giant brown heart for the face and a small brown oval cut in half is used for the ears. With the brown construction paper make some arms and an oval tail. Black almond shaped eyes, an oval nose, and whiskers this little guy was almost complete. Cut some teeth out of white paper to complete this groundhog puppet.
My girls love learning about the groundhog and this silly little tradition this way. Paper bag puppets are always a huge hit with kids!
