It is that time of year again, time for my all time favorite holiday! I know what you are thinking why is groundhog’s day my favorite holiday? Well for two reasons, one I am usually ready for Spring right around this time and this gives me some hope that it will come soon. And two because it is my BIRTHDAY!!!! WOO HOO!!!!
Last year we made some yummy Groundhog Pudding cups for the holiday, but this year I wanted to get the girls a little more excited about it and help them to understand what it is all about. So I thought we would make these fun groundhog Day shadow plates, to let the girls see how the it sees it’s shadow.
Both girls had fun making the plates, since they both really love to color they liked got to color everything on this one. And they were very excited to go out and see the shadow. I think they understand more on what the whole holiday is about and now that their groundhogs had a shadow they both think we are going to have a long winter, oh how I hope they are WRONG! You will notice I went back outside later in the day and took the shot above with NO SHADOW so my prediction is an early Spring, but that is more because that is just want I want than anything else!
