One grand thing about homeschooling is the ability to celebrate silly holidays.
We got our schoolwork done a little early, so that we could do a few cutesy Groundhog Day printable activities this afternoon. We also looked up the news story about Punxsutawney Phil to find that he “predicted” six more weeks of winter. (And the kids cheered! How funny! I always wanted early spring, but they cheered for more winter!)
And then, when Luke got home, we celebrated some more!
We had ourselves a little contest to see who could make the best-looking Groundhog-shaped pizza.
Luke is the master of any pizza-dough-shaping contest! And Gracie didn’t do half bad, either. (The rest of us kind of gave up. My Groundhog face looked like Mickey Mouse, Ava made a heart, and the boys made dinosaurs.) 🙂
And to top off the evening’s festivities, we had a scrumptious dessert…with P. Phil poking out the top (inspired by the cupcakes here).
Happy Groundhog Day, everyone!
Next up for celebrations…Valentine’s Day!
