Feb 1 2013 - 11:47am

While it may not be the most widely celebrated holiday of the calendar year, Groundhog Day (Feb. 2) is a tradition that dates back to 1887 and is a fun way to add some excitement to your lil one's week. Check out these seven sweet treats to celebrate the coming Spring (or extension of Winter).

Fun fact: Did you know that Punxsutawney Phil has moved into the 21st century? If you text "Groundhog" to 247365 now through Feb. 2, then he'll text you back with his weather prediction!

Green Groundhog Cupcakes

We love Bloom Designs's recipe for Groundhog Cupcakes [1] — they turn store-bought Teddy Grahams into groundhogs, and sprinkles into green "grass."

Inspired by The Big Snow [3], these clever cupcakes may take a little extra prep time, but the results are worth it.

Peekaboo Puppet

Crafty types can surprise their kids on Groundhog Day with one of these adorable handmade pop-up puppets [5]. They deserve a place in the toy box well beyond Feb. 2!

Pushable Groundhog Pops

These decadent, chocolatey push pops do double duty — they're as much fun to play with as they are to eat.

Cookie Cutter Cuteness

Channel your inner artist and get out the icing — a teddy bear cookie cutter morphs into a groundhog, thanks to a few little details.

Pudding Cakes

Nilla Wafer "Phils" peek out of a bed of chocolate dirt, which can be made out of either pudding or chocolate cake. We love the groundhogs' heart-shaped noses!

The Coziest Cocoa

Especially appropriate if Phil says that Winter's sticking around for six more weeks . . . keep lil ones warm with mugs of hot cocoa — groundhog included.
