You can use the feet or replace them with the hole if you want your groundhog to look like he's peeking out on Groundhog's Day.
This groundhog is a simple cut and paste paper craft that is fun for young children to make. It makes a great project for preschool and kindergarten kids and works well for a mammals, groundhog's day or letter G theme.
- something to color with if using the B&W version,
- glue, and
- You can use brass fasteners ("brads") instead of glue to attach the head or arms if you want them to be moveable.
- Print out the template of choice.
- Color (where appropriate).
- Cut out the template pieces -- parents can help cut out some of the more difficult pieces like the wings while children work on the easier pieces like the body and legs.
- Glue the groundhog together in the following order:
- Glue the feet or the hole behind the body (it's up to you which you prefer)
- Glue the arms onto the body
- Glue the calendar into one of the hands
- Glue the head onto the body
