This craft is great for an older child to make or you can make it to give to a younger child. This play set comes with a groundhog, a shadow, and his hole. The groundhog can go in and out of the hole and you can decide if he sees his shadow or not!
- Toilet Paper Roll
- Chenille Stems
- Wiggle Eyes
The first thing you need to do is cut a 2-inch piece from the toilet paper roll. You also need to cut a piece of green felt that is 3-inches tall and 6-inches wide.
Now you are ready to start constructing your groundhog. You will want two brown pom-poms, one a little smaller than the other. Glue them together – the smaller one will be the head and the larger one will be the body.
Cut 6 pieces from brown chenille stem. Bend four of them in half – two will be the arms and two will be the legs. Wrap the other 2 around two small, white or tan pom-poms. Glue these together to make the ears.
