Peek-a-Boo Groundhogs

I have a simple and cute groundhog craft to share with you today. I printed some coloring pages of groundhogs (found here and here), cut them out and had the kids color them.
Then each child got a half piece of white construction paper and drew either a sun or cloud at the top. (Actually, all my kids drew a sun, but they had the option of drawing a cloud.) For the bottom half of the paper, they covered it with glue and cotton balls to make snow. We just had a snow storm so we have plenty of snow on the ground now! But if you live somewhere warmer, you could easily make grass at the bottom by using easter grass.
When it was dry, I cut a slit right above the cotton balls and attached a big craft stick to the groundhog. At first, their paper just looks like it's a sunny day with snow-covered ground.
But when you slide the groundhog through the slit, up he pops, looking for his shadow!
The kids took them home and will find out tomorrow if what they predicted comes true!
