If a Groundhog sees its shadow there will be six more weeks of winter. But, if the groundhog does not see its shadow that means Spring will come early. Learn more about Groundhog Day (February 2nd) on Wikipedia.com.

Step 2: Staple and Cut Out the Groundhog Craft Shapes

Print the Groundhog Craft Template and staple the pieces to multiple sheets of paper before cutting

Once you have the print outs, staple them to construction paper and cut out the shapes you need.

Note: If you want to make this craft with a group of kids, you can staple the template to up to 10 sheets of copy paper, 5 sheets of cardstock or 5-8 sheets of construction paper.

So, did you know that you can staple together 10 pieces of copy paper and cut out 10 shapes at a time?! That’s my SECRET to fast & easy crafting. Stapling the paper is very important because it makes sure it doesn’t move as you cut. The more staples the better. Cardstock is the thickest so you may only be able to cut 5 sheets at a time.

Tip: While you’re cutting, if you cut off all parts of the pages that have staples, make sure to re-staple the sheets that are left. Whenever you’re cutting multiple sheets at a time, make sure they are always stapled together!

Step 3: How to Assemble the Paper Groundhog Craft

I recommend having a finished craft so the children can see what the final version will look like.

  1. First, glue the hat onto the top of your groundhog.
  2. Next, glue the black oval in the middle of his face to make the nose.
  3. Use a marker to draw the eyes and the mouth onto your groundhog.
  4. Glue the teeth onto the mouth you drew.
  5. Optional: Glue the pink cheeks onto your groundhog.
  6. Don’t forget to write your name on the back.
