My girls have loved using paper plates for crafts these past few weeks and with February around the corner, we created a fun Groundhog Paper Plate Kids Craft! Easy enough to make, but so much fun and cute to hang!

Groundhog Paper Plate Kids Craft
This is a fun and easy groundhog paper plate craft to celebrate groundhogs day. My girls loved learning about groundhogs and Punxsutawney Phil.
Materials needed to create your paper plate groundhog craft:
- Paper plate (2)
- Brown and white construction paper
- Googly eyes
- Black pom pom
- Black permanent marker
- Craft glue
- Using one of the paper plates, cut out two small groundhog ears. Paint the other paper plate completely brown, along with the two pieces of groundhog ears previously cut out.
- Allow drying for a few hours before gluing any pieces.
- With a lighter piece of brown construction paper cut out smaller pieces for your groundhog. These pieces are to be glued on top of the larger earpieces.
- Use the same piece of brown construction paper to cut out a piece similar to the one shown above to be used as the groundhog’s mouth. Using a piece of white construction paper cut a small rectangle shape for the teeth.
- Allow your kiddos to draw whiskers using a black marker on the brown piece of construction paper you will use for the groundhog’s mouth. On the white piece of construction paper draw a straight black line.
- Now you need craft glue and let your child add the groundhog’s mouth, nose, teeth, and eyes on the paper plate.
- Also, glue on the groundhog’s ears on the top of the plate and allow to dry.
That’s it! Now you have a fun groundhog craft that would be perfect to use for story time and look so adorable hung up!
