Celebrating Ground Hog’s Day

Groundhog’s Day is always on February 2nd. The official groundhog is called Punxsutawney Phil because he lives in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania in a burrow on Gobblers Knob.     According to legend, carried from Germany by early settlers, if the day is bright and sunny and Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow there will be six more weeks of wintery weather. If the day is overcast and he does not see his shadow, the weather will begin to warm for an early spring.   The customs and stories make it a fun day to celebrate with kids. has a little Itsy Bitsy Book about Groundhog’s Day for younger kids to color and for adults to help assemble.  You can find the link to print it here.    Easy to follow directions are found here.



Make this sandwich with dark  wheat bread, peanut butter and jelly, a banana, a dark grape , and edible grass, such as shredded lettuce or tinted coconut.  Kitchen Fun With My Sons has  complete directions for this clever    Ground Hog lunch.

First little groundhog digs a home in the fall,
And curls up all winter rolled up like a ball.
Second little groundhog comes out of his lair,
On February second to get some fresh air.. .
