Groundhog Day

In celebration of Punxsutawney Phil predicting an early spring, Froggy and I celebrated Groundhog Day today.  First we read Groundhog Weather School and Groundhog Day by Lynn Peppas which gives a nice history and explanation of the holiday.  Carol Leon Boyd has a cute song that compares Groundhog Day and Tu B'Shevat which we sang.

Froggy discovered a cute animated story about Groundhog Day on Starfall that she introduced to me.

The shining cap of the day (at least in my opinion) was making a Groundhog puppet that popped out its hole to make his prediction.


Froggy painted a cup to be Punx's hole.
Then she cut out a body and head
Attached her new groundhog onto a Popsicle stick and voila

  1. This is so cute! We definitely know that the ground hog saw his shadow here today. While it was beautiful, it was cold.
