Arts & Crafts: Holidays > Groundhog's Day


Sponge paint Groundhog added 8-7-97
Original Author Unknown

Need: Sponge, paper, paint

Directions: Cut a groundhog shape out of a sponge and let the children sponge paint one in brown and one in black on a piece of white or tan paper. Or just let them do a 
collage of groundhog shadows, with black sponge painting on White paper.


Groundhog in his hole added 8-7-97 Original Author Unknown

Need: Brown paper, paper cup, straw, tape

Directions: Cut out the shape of a Groundhog on Brown paper. (small enough to fit in a paper cup.) Let the children color in it eyes, nose, mouth etc. Then have each  Child paint a paper cup brown. Poke a small hole in the bottom of a cup. Tape the groundhog they colored onto a straw. Push the straw through the hole in the cup. Now when you move the straw up and down you have a groundhog puppet.


Groundhog Art Project added 4-30-98 Original Author Unknown

Janet

Need: Small paper plates, sponges, paint, craft stick

Directions: Use two small white paper plates. One you will cut one in half, using a wavy line, the other is uncut. The children will sponge paint the front of the uncut plate blue, for the sky. Sponge plate the back of the half plate brown, for the ground. Now find a small picture of a groundhog (no taller than the half plate) and glue to a craft stick. Staple plate and half plate together (front to back) then insert groundhog stick between the two (bottom center). When you push the stick up, the groundhog pops up, when pulled down, he runs back into his hole. It really is cute.....kind of like the cup idea.
