Predictions on Groundhog Day 2018

Do you think Punxsutawney Phil's predication of 6 more weeks of Winter will come true? 
It is said that his predication's are 39% accurate so we'll see what happens this year! I know a lot of people are ready for the sunshine and warmth, and flowers and Spring to Summer adventures, but I kind of like the idea for another 6 weeks of Winter. This season is so slow and really makes you stop to enjoy the indoors. I love to get out, so I admit I do get a little stir-crazy inside, but Spring and Summer will come when it does, and I will enjoy the things when it's time for that season.

   I always like to do a little crafting fun on these holidays, and even though my son is getting older, he still enjoys them every now and then. Today's activities could be suited for any age really, but we started it with a simple book we picked up from the library: "Punxsutawney Phyllis" by Susanna Leonard Bill. I thought the book was cute, but my son's opinion was "meh" I guess it was deemed 'too young' for his aging 10 year old self haha. I do like that the book had some informational History in the back though! 
   Next he filled out a 'Make A Predication' Worksheet that I printed off free from and he predicted the same that Punxsutawney Phil's predicted... another 6 weeks of Winter! He really doesn't like Summer because of the heat haha. The fun craft we did was a silly little Groundhog Head made with hearts-because it's February! The head is a large heart upside, with half hearts for ears, a heart nose, upside down heart teeth, and fun googly eyes! I think he's pretty cute =) 
What kind of fun did you get in to today?
