Zzz Sleeping Groundhog Craft

make this fun craft and you can wake up the groundhog on his special day by popping open his hole. This is not only a fun family activity, it is a great way to recycle egg carton cups..

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Glue 2 brown, 1-inch pom-poms side-by-side on the bottom of one of the egg carton cups. Use smaller pom-poms or even scrap pieces of brown felt to make the groundhogs arms and legs. Cut out a small black circle for a nose and 2 small lengths of yarn to make closed eyes. Use figure 1 as an example.

Place the egg carton cups on top of each other with the groundhog lying in the bottom cup. Tape together one side as shown in figure 2. Paint the outsides of both egg carton cups green, or whatever color you desire. Set aside to dry.

Once dry, use the marker to draw a few Z's on the top cup as shown in figure 3. You can now look in the groundhog's 'hole' and see him sleeping!
