groundhog day!

so we took some crafty little puppets (groundhog printable glued on old cracker and cereal boxes with a craft stick hot glued on…thank you ms hanna for your factory-like work in getting them ALL cut out!), colored them brown (or any other color of choice) and took them out for a shadow hunt!

we did read a factoid that phil’s weather predictions have only been right 39% of the time.

    Those tires make great groundhog holes. What a great idea! We tried Shadow tag on Groundhog day but it was too cloudy in our area to see any shadows. We did play the day before when it was sunny, though.
