Groundhog Day Edible Crafts for Kids

When Punxsutawney Phil pops out of his hole on Feb. 2 to see whether or not he can atually see his shadow, the country will be waiting with bated breath. Will there be six more weeks of winter? Will spring come early? How do we communicate with a groundhog in the first place?


Whether or not good ol' Phil actually sees his shadow or not remains to be determined, but I think we would all like an early end to this harsh winter we've been having. And while we can't control what the furry guy actually sees, we can control how we celebrate the holiday. 

After some browsing on Pinterest, I saw some of the most adorable edible crafts to make in the name of all things groundhogs. There are delicious cookies, festive pancakes and even DIY push-pops. I've shared my favorites, and I hope that even if our little weatherman dooms us with another long winter, we can still take comfort in these tasty treats.

 

Pop-Up Groundhog Cookies

 

OK, these cookies seriously blow my mind. If you have the time, patience and creativity to pull these off, then props to you. These cookies are actually also interactive little toys. Push the little groundhog up so he pokes through the whole in the ground! How cute is that? Get the tutorial from sheknows.com.

 

Groundhog Cupcake Push Pops

 

Keeping with the theme of interactive dessert treats, these cupcake push-ups are holiday-appropriate. Again, you need some time and patience, but the results are pretty cool. Watch your delicious little groundhog pop up in just seconds! Get the full tutoiral from Sweetology101

 

Groundhog Pancakes

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. So while you're waiting for Phil to see his shadow, whip up some of these adorable Groundhog Pancakes from The Joys of Boys. How cute are these?!

 

Goundhog Day Hot Cocoa

 

Even if Phil predicts an early spring, it's still pretty darn cold in the beginning of February. To stay warm, make some hot cocoa accompanied by an adorable groundhog cookie, as featured on Gourmet Mom on the Go.

 

Groundhog Pudding Cups

 

These cute little cookies poking out of the pudding dirt are just too much. With some chocolate sandwich cookies, chocolate pudding and creatively placed chocolate chips, you can make these groundhog pudding cups from Simple Girl at Home, too. 

 

Groundhog Day Donuts

Donuts are probably the best choice when it comes to pastries. They're seriously the best, so jazz them up like Random Thoughts of a Super Mom did with some nutter butters and clever sprinkles. So yummy!

 

Groundhog Cookies

 

Sometimes, keeping the decorated cookie just cute and simple works perfect. These cookies from That Bald Chick prove that a little creative icing go a long way.
