Happy Groundhog's Day

Do you think Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow today?  What are you hoping for?  In Florida, where it is going to be 80 degrees today (don't hate me) I am hoping for 6 more weeks of winter.  Well, while we are waiting to see what Phil is going to do here are a few activities to enjoy with your children today. 
Make Groundhog Cupcakes

Go outside and play with your shadow or use a flashlight if it is too cold or cloudy.
Try to:
hide from your shadow
trace your shadow
shake hands with someone else's shadow without actually touching hands
make your shadow do things you can't do, such as walk up a building
stand on someone else's shadow
record how your shadow changes throughout the day

Read a book about shadows such as Moonbear's Shadow or  Gregory's Shadow (Picture Puffins).

Groundhog Day (Special Edition)  Put Groundhog Day in the DVD player and curl up on the couch for a few laughs.
