"Bag it!" Groundhog Day Craft

Here's a cute little groundhog craft made out of a brown paper lunch bag.

Simply run off the patterns; students color, cut & glue to the front & back of their bag, which they've stuffed with crumpled scrap paper.

Just as Punxsutawney Phil has a name, for added fun have your students name their groundhog, which they use as a manipulative to explain facts about Groundhog Day, predicting if the groundhog will see his shadow forecasting 6 more weeks of winter, or if we'll have an early spring.
