We’ve been reading “Groundhog Day!” by Gail Gibbons.
It’s more of an information book about the holiday but in a style understandable by preschool and young elementary age children.
Last year our Paper Plate Groundhog Craft turned out looking like a beaver. Haha! So we went with a heart shaped face like we saw on Pinterest to try to make it look more Groundhog-like. Since my kids love to dress up in costumes I decided the perfect way to celebrate Groundhog Day was for my children to be able to wear a Groundhog Mask and go out in the morning and pretend they were Punxsutawney Phil and see if they could see their shadow.
