It is almost time to see if that crazy groundhog sees his shadow!
I have gathered up 15 groundhog day activities for kids that y’all will love and have included a tons of free printable’s for the kids to play with as well. Just check out the super cute finger puppets with the adorable buck teeth!
What is Groundhog’s Day? It’s a traditional holiday celebrated on February 2 where According to folklore, if it is cloudy when a he emerges from its burrow on this day, then spring will come early; if it is sunny, then he will supposedly see its shadow and retreat back into its burrow, and the winter weather will persist for six more weeks. I don’t know about you but I am hoping for an early spring!

These are all great Groundhogs Day activities. I love the finger-puppet and the mask.
These are some really fun ideas! I love the chubby cheeks pancakes! So cute.
The chubby cheek pancakes are SO CUTE! I love that. This is a holiday my kids love and I do like it – because I like to think of winter ending!
Love the cupcakes! Not sure which I like about it more – the cuteness or the fact it uses Reese’s PB cups!
Oh my goodness. These are all SO cute. My kids would love to do these with me. I am loving the little groundhogs, so adorable.
Very cute! My kids will love doing these. Thanks for all of the great ideas!

Those cupcakes are adorable. I live in PA and Phil is all the rage. Such cute ideas here.
First thing I did this morning was see if he saw his shadow or not! Now we wait for “Balzac Billy” to see what Alberta is in store for.

I totally forgot about GroundHog Day. Now I have to definitely think of something to do with my 4yr old and you just showed me a few things. Thank you.
Oh yay! I forgot about Groundhogs Day so now I have something to look forward too! And my kids are randomly off school for it so we’ll have to make a big to do over it.

Liz Mays says
Oh my goodness, what a fun day to celebrate a very cute holiday. I love so many of these projects.
These are all such cute ideas. Love the pancakes and the footprints. Super creative!
Those are fun activities. My granddaughters will have so much fun with these projects.
These are perfect for homeschool next week! I, for one, am hoping for an early spring…we haven’t had an early spring in several years, and I would really like it if we could have one again!
these are all so terrific. I feel inspired to do more for Tuesday’s homeschool now. I especially love the flip picture and the Chubby Cheek pancakes. nice roundup, ?
Ana Fernandez says
All these activities sound super fun and interesting! Saving them for Grounhog day!
Deb- It's me, debcb! says

What a great resource for activities. I’m sharing this with teacher friends. Thanks.
Cannot believe Groundhog Day is so close and I love your ideas. I will be taking your ideas to entertain my niece while I babysit. The more to entertain, the easier it is to babysit 🙂

Who knew there are so many fun Groundhog’s Day activities? Those cupcakes and pancakes are adorable. I wouldn’t mind some winter or cooler weather down here in FL.
laura londergan says
these are ideas are so cute for groundhogs day! I love the pancakes – my daughter would love that!
I haven’t even THOUGHT of groundhog day, and goodness knows I love something to celebrate! Those adorable cupcakes will be perfect for my crew!
I had no idea there were so many cute things to do for groundhogs day. Those cupcakes are seriously cute!
Ashley @irishred02 says
The cupcakes and cookies are so cute! I would definitely eat them up 🙂
These are such cute ideas! The cupcakes look like so much fun!
Such fun! I love the shapes and characters and how you’ve connected them all! Must try some!
Carol Bryant says
I never thought of groundhog day fun but you have inspired me. I need to learn more about them since I do live in PA, home of Phil!
How fun is this? I love the pancake idea! My kids would love it. 🙂
Those cookies are too cute! I know up north is getting hit with some serious snow, but down here an early spring means an especially brutal summer, so I wouldn’t mind 6 more weeks of crisp temperatures and low a/c bills!
What a fun post!! Those pancakes are so cute! This holiday is so overlooked and this post is such a great reminder of how fun it can be!
That cupcake is adorable! Maybe I will attempt it with me son.
Rebecca Bryant says
Oh my those Groundhog pancakes are too cute. I miss doing these kinds of activities with my son.
I love those cupcakes. They are so cute and adorable. But all are great projects to plan fun with the kids.
