Ground Hog Day Theme Puppet Play

 
 Our Groundhog Day Puppet Show!
Today is Groundhog Day!  I’m not sure if people who are not from Pennsylvania even know about this day, but we in Western PA look forward to this day when Punxsutawney Phil comes out to see if he can see his shadow to predict how many weeks there are left until spring!  This silly and fun tradition got us thinking we needed a puppet show with a groundhog:)

Groundhog’s Day Puppet Pretend Play

 
We gathered up some supplies:
brown paper lunch bags
glue

brown yarn

googly eyes
I just grabbed what i thought would give it a nice brown color/smell- Pickling Spice worked perfectly!

The audience was patiently waiting!

 
There was a small incident where little brother dumped the entire bottle
of pickling spice out (oops)!  It was cleaned up easily and provided a
great smell.
 
 These little fingers had so much fun grabbing all those little spices and gluing them to the paper bag.
Big sister did a great job of cutting up the yarn to make fur for our groundhog.

 
 I was sure to purchase a ticket!
 
 Let the show begin!!!

Share It Saturday #5

Share It Saturday and Our Week In Review… 

This has been a fun, hectic, crazy, silly, week…but aren’t they all ?!?!

We started our week off with an evening of fun with the nieces and nephews playing together and us Sugar Aunt sisters getting into all sorts of hijinks.  It seems like any time that two or three of us are together, there is super ridiculous crazy-ness and fun!  And, I love that our kids are all so close and more like siblings than cousins.

We got together for the kids to play and us moms to plan some blog stuff.  But of course, there had to be food involved…and more importantly, SWEETS!

Ughhhh! Don’t these look A-mazing??  These little cuties were from a local bakery and sooo good!  It’s totally ok to have dessert before dinner…and then a little more after dinner, too 🙂





The kids played (dress-up) and we made some apple sauce-healthy corn bread muffins and enjoyed some yummy turkey chili from the crock.

 We tried to make a little Valentine’s Day themed slime…it all seemed to be going well…until it didn’t and we had Valentine’s Day slop.


Oy, what a mess! It was pretty at least 🙂 we will call this one a Blog Fail!  



 The rest of the week sailed by and we are ready for another
