Monday Meanderings - Groundhog Day

Well, Groundhog Day is Wednesday, February 2nd and personally I am hoping for no more cold weather. We have had lots of snow in Kentucky and we are ready for more sunshine. Here are some activities to do with the kids.

First up is Preschool - What fun we had with a very cute little groundhog craft. You even let to get him come out of his "burrow".

I had lots of trouble finding some good links for this holiday but I did find the Official Punxsatawney Phil Website that has some ideas and some interesting things for kids.

My own contributions are below:
Learn a tongue twister - How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? (Woodchuck is another name for Groundhog)
Go outside and trace each others shadows on the driveway or sidewalk.
Once Phil makes his prediction, track the weather for the next six weeks to see if he is correct.
Discuss how shadows are made and then make hand shadows on a wall.

Enjoy Groundhog day!
