Edible Art and Crafts Groundhog Day Recipes honoring Punxsutawney Phil

Recipes for Groundhog Day? That doesn't sound appetizing, but these are fun kid-friendly food crafts.

Groundhog Day, such a cute creature, but so few cute edible art and crafts out there. You've heard of Punxsutawney Phil? He's like a little teddy bear crossed with a beaver. He's so popular he has his own website with lesson plans for his special day. This is just one of our many marshmallow activities for kids. Enjoy!

I noticed most of the Groundhog Activities and Crafts out there look like tiny, adorable teddy bears. Groundhogs aren't so cute in real life. So, we focused on his true features. Note the tiny ears and big nose. I forgot to add his big teeth!

We used an upside down Snyder's Pretzel Chip, an old-fashioned oatmeal cookie, a small chocolate marshmallow, and holiday icing to glue it together. I stuck some green chips from the icing into the pretzel for eyes. IDK. Scroll down for the traditional teddy bear variety.
