In anticipation of the upcoming Groundhog Day on February 2nd, predict with your students whether or not the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow or not with our R42006 Groundhog Day Craft!
The Groundhog Day craft has everything you need to make your own representation of the Punxsutawney scene when Phil sticks out his head. Will he make it outside to see his shadow or not with the impending blizzard? Time will tell!
The legend goes that when Phil comes out of his hibernation burrow in February, he may or may not see his shadow. If he sees his shadow, Phil will return back to his burrow and there will be 6 more weeks of winter! However, if the opposite happens, and no shadow is seen, then there will be an early spring.
Phil is known as a prognosticator or someone who predicts something. Let’s hope his prediction is right!
The kit comes with 24 printed card scenes. The print features a generic sky with a sun. Find your own groundhog in the kit and start decorating! You can glue the groundhog to the center pop-out tab, then add details around him, such as clouds, flowers or snowflakes.
Make your prediction then see what happens on February 2nd!

Mrs. Knight shows us her beautiful classroom with her detailed photo gallery! One of the photographs shows Mrs. Knight’s take on table numbers!
Mrs. Knight published “Inspiration to Fruition… Thank you!” on August 9, 2013 where she talks about her various inspirations for her classroom.
The table numbers she made were made from our R15303 Retro Pop Paper. Cover a metal table clamp with a folded sheet of Retro Pop Paper! Tape the edges of the paper together to secure. Decorate the front and back of the Retro Pop Paper with black marker–write a letter or a number to organize your students into groups!
Thanks to Mrs. Knight for her post!
