Make Groundhog Day an educational and fun experience with our Printable Groundhog Day Activities Pack! This learning pack will teach kids about this fun holiday in an interactive way that will stretch them and help them grow.
When I was a kid, I loved Groundhog Day. It was one of those off-beat days when something special happened, and the outcome was a mystery.
Fast forward to life as a parent. My middle son was born on February 2nd – Groundhog Day. And he LOVES that his birthday is on a holiday!
And, as silly as it may sound, this holiday is just as much fun for me as a parent as it was when I was a kid. I think it’s the mystery…will we have 6 more weeks of winter weather or an early spring?
Printable Groundhog Day Activities
One thing I realized with my kids was that they had no idea what a groundhog was. They would hear about Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction with excitement, but I don’t think they really understood much about it (did I?).
SO I decided to do something to change that to help take full advantage of the Groundhog Day celebration!
First I created these free printable Groundhog’s Day Coloring Pages.
Then decided to take it a step further, so I created a printable pack of groundhog-related activities to help kids learn about groundhogs AND the Groundhog day tradition!
This 12-page pack includes fun and educational activities such as facts about groundhogs, word search puzzles, scientific method practice, word scramble, drawing tutorial, creative writing, and more!
