Ground Hog Day February 2 is a major weather day in many ways. The weather man is none other than the ground hog day. Being prepared for this day is of major importance. Making this craft will have you and your child both in the moods to see how Mr. or Mrs. Groundhog detects the future of the next 6 weeks of weather.
Will he stay in the burrow?
Will he peek out and see the weather coming out to see his shadow or perhaps not seeing his shadow. Time will only tell.
To make this craft you will need:
Brown or black pom pom
Googly eyes (optional)
You need to portions of the egg carton cut out, one for the top, and one for the bottom. Let your child paint these brown. When the paint is dry, put some glue on the inside of one of the cups and glue a brown pom pom inside. If you have small pom poms you may want to smash several together to make him big enough to fill the cup bottom. You can add eyes to him if you would like. Using masking tape tape the top to the bottom or a brass brad connecting the two pieces would work as well.
