Free Printable Groundhog Headband Template

Included with your free groundhog headband template you will find two different versions of this project. 

One version is a craft option. You can use colored paper or cardstock and get creative to make your own headband.

There’s also a black and white version that kids can color with crayons, use markers, or even paint if you use a thicker paper (cardstock works great for this). 

No matter what option you choose for your project, one thing is for sure, your kids will love creating and wearing their headband craft. 

History of the Groundhog

While making this craft with the kids, it’s always a great idea to talk with them about the history of the groundhog “Phil”.

You can explain to the kids if he sees his shadow we will have 6 more weeks of winter. If he does not, spring will come sooner.

We also like to poll the kids to see if they think “Phil” will see his shadow or if spring will come quicker. Most of them usually pick spring coming because they are hopeful of warmer days of playing outside. 

More Animal Activities for Kids

There are so many great animal crafts for kids out there we thought we would share some of our reader’s favorites with you to give you some great ideas to do with the kids. 

This handprint snowy owl is a great choice this time of year. It’s simple to make and includes a free template to help make his body.

The kids will love creating this project and you will love watching those tiny handprints grow over the years. Not only that, but this project helps strengthen fine motor skills with all the cutting.
