Groundhog Day Fun Ideas and Traditions


Groundhog Day traditions

Are you looking for something fun to do with the kids on Groundhog Day?

Begin the day by waking up the children with the song “I’ve Got You Babe” by Sonny and Cher (a nod to the movie Groundhog Day starring Bill Murray). If there’s no school today, stay in your pajamas, put sleeping bags on the ground, eat groundhog pancakes, and drink groundhog hot cocoa, and snuggle in for a movie (Click here for 50+ ideas for Groundhog Day snacks). Try playing shadow tag, making silhouettes or other Groundhog Day crafts, or learning how to make shadow puppets.

When coming up with a new tradition for Groundhog Day consider these key words that are important to the holiday: Groundhog, winter, spring, ground, shadow, hibernation

You can focus on the Groundhog itself or rather on the weather and seasons. You can find something fun to do that has to do with the ground, with shadows, or with sleeping!
