We recently received the book A Greyhound, A Groundhog by Emily Jenkins and Chris Appelhans.

It’s a fun fast-paced story about a greyhound who finds a groundhog, and the fun they have playing together. My son and I read the book  together and he enjoyed all the rhymes and different combinations of words. Afterwards he confessed that he didn’t really know what a groundhog was, so I decided to make this paper plate groundhog for him!

I drew the head and shoulders of a groundhog onto a small white paper plate. Paper Plate Groundhog Craft - a cute craft for kids to make

I colored it in and cut it out. I then attached a flat stick to the back of it. I found a large green paper plate and cut a hole in the center, wide enough to fit the stick and long enough for the groundhog to move from side to side. I thought that the green plate looked too bright, so I asked my son to help me glue some fake moss onto the plate.Paper Plate Groundhog Craft - a cute craft for kids to make

He then threaded the groundhog into position.

We both agreed that the groundhog looked very cute when it popped out!
