New Groundhog Day Legends

My kids loved learning about Punxatawny Phil--their teacher, after all, was born and raised in Pennsylvania (or Transylvania as they refer to it, darn movies! :). We learned all about the legend and they had a ton of questions like how old was Phil? How does it work with his shadow, because doesn't it depend on the light behind him? Oh, my smart little kiddos!

So since the groundhog legend does seem just a little bit random, I asked them to create a new legend to determine whether spring would arrive sooner or later.

Super Bowl on the brain, I think! :)

I want the dolphin to see his shadow.....

Pin It!
