Groundhog Day and Shadow Play

Pre-kids, quirky little holidays like Groundhog Day didn’t really do much for me.  Post-kids they provide the perfect opportunity to easily add a little magic to a typical day.  To see what I mean, check out my latest kid craft over at momtastic: groundhog shadow puppets.  It’s a simple little project you can do next Thursday with the kiddos (there’s a secret weapon that will help you impress them even if you couldn’t draw a straight line to save your life.)


And to extend the fun, have another look at my Super-Sized-Mega-Big Post on Playing with Shadows.

Happy playing and happy weekend!
