Well, another day stuck in the house because of cold, rainy weather. Booooo! So I’m trying to think of things to do to keep the boys (and myself) busy. How ’bout a craft? And since tomorrow is Groundhog’s Day, let’s make something for that! Now here is where my background in Early Childhood comes in handy.
This is what I came up with.
A peeking groundhog!
Okay, so the groundhog may look a little funny, but little man Jackson absolutely loves playing with it and I love that he made it!
These are the materials we used. Pretty basic. Oops, just notice that the styrofoam cup is absent from the photo. Brown pom-poms would have been really cute for the groundhog, but I didn’t have any in the
junk craft bucket.
First Jackson painted the cup.
While it dried . . .
Jackson cut the paper to make grass,
I cut a circle and an oval for the groundhog and he glued the pieces together,
and then gave the little guy a face. (Please note the pride on Jackson’s face for what he just did. I love it!)
When the paint was dry we glued the grass onto the top of the cup.
I had to help a little bit with this part to secure it all the way around.
Finally, I poked the bottom of the stick through the inside of the cup.
And that was it!
Happy Groundhog’s Day!
