Groundhog Holiday Preschool Craft: Groundhog Masks

Last year we made these really simple groundhog masks for Groundhog Day. First we read about groundhogs and Groundhog Day, and watched some videos about them. Afterward we made these masks and then my little boys pretended to be groundhogs.

They had such a fun time "popping up" out of their "holes" like groundhogs.

Groundhog Day Preschool Craft: Groundhog Masks

  • Cardboard circle or paper plate
  • Markers or crayons
  • Scissors and hole punch for adults to use
  • White cardboard "teeth" and glue stick (optional)
  • String or elastic to hold the mask on, or a popsicle stick to hold up the mask
  1. Ahead of time cut out eye holes and holes at the side to tie on string or elastic if desired.
  2. Give the children markers or crayons and show them a picture of a groundhog. Ask them to decorate their mask like a groundhog.
  3. If you want to introduce gluing into this project you can have them glue on two big white front teeth . This was a highlight for my boys.
  4. When they are finished decorating tie on string or elastic or secure popsicle stick.
  5. Let the children pretend to be groundhogs!

They also wrote or dictated groundhog reports and drew groundhogs.
