This is a cross post from my TP Craft site. If you are interested in other crafty projects using toilet paper and paper towel rolls then you should check it out.
Tomorrow is Groundhog Day! Here is a fun little activity that we really enjoyed. Cole loves popping his groundhog out of the hole. We even used the reading light in his room to show the groundhog's shadow on the wall and did a mini lesson on shadows and light.
Groundhog Supply List: 1 toilet paper roll, brown paint, scissors, glue stick, crayons, popsicle stick, crayons, groundhog printout
Start by painting your toilet paper roll with brown paint and allow to dry.
Print out a picture of a groundhog. I got mine from here. I printed it at 30% and it was the perfect size to fit in my groundhog hole (toilet paper roll).
Cut out your groundhog and glue him to the popsicle stick. Once he is dry, your groundhog is ready to pop in and out of his hole.
Book Suggestion: We are crazy about non-fiction books in this house. Each week at the library Cole picks out at least 1 non-fiction book. Groundhog Day is a great book to introduce young children to the holiday. It has wonderful pictures that kids will love.
