Sponge paint Groundhog
added 8-7-97 Original
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
Groundhog in his hole
paper, paper cup, straw, tape
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.

Need: Small paper plates, sponges, paint,
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.
