Groundhog's Day

Since Groundhog's Day is a couple days away, we decided to do some groundhog related activities. We talked about what a groundhog is, and how some people think that they can predict the weather. We are hoping for a early spring.

Alex did some worksheets from 2Teaching Mommies' adorable Groundhog Mini Unit.

We did a cute groundhog face craft that is made from using mostly hearts. I cut out all the shapes and Alex glued them on and added the whiskers. I saw this craft on Pinterest, the original post and directions are from here.

Alex is fascinated with cutting so I let him practice cutting some scraps with his preschool scissors. I think we need to invest in a better pair. Anyone have some suggestions for a pair of good beginner scissor for a 3 year old?

Of course we read a couple of groundhog books that we borrowed from the library.
