Tomorrow is Groundhog Day. The girls are ready to celebrate with their puppets they made the other day.
You will need:
brown craft foam
white craft foam
black craft foam
green construction paper
brown pipe cleaner
Begin by cutting out the ovals for the belly and head from the brown foam. Then cut out the shapes for the ears and paws.
Cut out a circle from the black craft foam for the nose and a square from the white foam.
(You could also use construction paper instead of foam)
Glue all the pieces of the groundhog on the Popsicle stick...
Glue on the googly eyes and use a black marker to draw on the whiskers and lines on the ears, paws, and teeth.
When you are finished it should look like this...
Next, cut rectangles out of green construction paper and glue them to the cup until the cup is completely covered. You can also paint the cup with green paint, but we had trouble with the paint sticking to the cup because of the waxy surface.
If using, glue the brown pipe cleaner around the top of the cup to resemble dirt. Once the glue is dry, cut a tiny slit in the bottom of the cup and insert the puppet and let the puppet show begin!
Happy Groundhog Day everyone!!
