Paper Plate


Give each child one whole paper plate and a half of a paper plate. (Use the thin paper ones with ridges around their edges.) Staple the half plate onto the bottom of the full plate, taking care to leave an opening between staples. Let children color the top of the plate blue (sky) and the bottom half brown with some green on top of the brown for grass. Give each child a precut groundhog shape and have him/her glue it onto a craft stick. (One of these groundhog images might be suitable.) Children can slide their groundhog/stick up between staples attaching the whole plate and half plate to make the groundhog pop up out of its hole.
