It's probably too late for you to try this now, but you may want to file away the idea for next year...we followed these directions to make a groundhog puppet.
You can sing the rhyme to I'm a Little Teapot, but I was too embarrassed to sing on the blog!

He's popping up to look around.
If he sees his shadow, down he'll go.
Six more weeks of winter - oh, no!
