DIY Groundhog Day Felt Playset

Felt is a fun, inexpensive material to work and play with. This fun project uses only felt and scissors (googly eyes optional, but why would you not use googly eyes?!) to create a fun Groundhog Day playset.


You can use leftover felt or purchase small pieces of felt at most craft stores for around $.30 a piece (not on sale).


Using a sharp pair of scissors cut shapes out of the felt.


You can use paper or objects such as a cup for a template if you wish.


Kids can layer the shapes and pieces to create a unique scene every time!


Use this playset to teach kids about the tradition of Groundhog Day. The Groundhog comes out…


… and if he sees his shadow there will be 6 more weeks of winter weather.


If he doesn’t see his shadow there will be an early spring.


Have your kids create many different winter and spring characters for a fun way to make up their own changing of the season stories!
