Markers, Crayons or Paint
#1: Decorate the large box to look like a burrow that a groundhog would live in. Create trees, grass and other outdoor items on the box.
#2: Have your child act as if the box is a barrow. You even pretend to be a groundhog coming out of its burrow to see if it sees it shadow. Directed light at the groundhog burrow and when your child comes out it will produce a shadow. Turn the light on and off to show and not show your childs shadow. If your child does not see their shadow they stay out of the burrow and can play.

Markers or Crayons
#1: Print out the printable groundhog
#2: Color and cut out the printable groundhog
#3: Glue the groundhog to the piece of construction paper.
#4: Try to predict if we will have six more or winter will be ending soon. If the groundhog fails to see its shadow because the weather is cloudy, winter will soon end. If on the other hand, it is sunny and the groundhog sees its shadow, the groundhog will continue for 6 more weeks.
Remember: Draw clouds and no shadow if you think winter will end soon. Draw a sun and the groundhogs shadow if you think we will have 6 more weeks of winter.
#5: Hang your groundhog prediction on the wall and see if you are right!
