Today is Saturday, and I'm so excited to share a few activities I've come across during the last week for Groundhog Day!  Groundhog Day is February 2nd--tradition says that if the large woodchuck sees his shadow, we still have six more weeks of winter!  For more details check out The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club Groundhog Day website!  Then see what these fun families are trying:

*** Jill at Kitchen Fun With My 3 Sons shared the fun dessert idea pictured above--you can just see Phil popping out to check on his shadow!  The details and instructions are at

*** Marcia's Links shared a fun poem that goes to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot!  You can find Here's a Little Groundhog at

*** Jill at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom shared an entire Groundhog Day unit!  Pictured to the right, it includes geography, math, and more!  It has materials for a variety of ages--check it out at  She also has several other printable Groundhog Day activities and resources--look for her Groundhog Day link in the right sidebar for more! 

If you were featured, feel free to grab a button from the right sidebar!

For us, any excuse to have a party is a great one!  We like to play shadow games and learn about groundhogs on February 2nd.

What about you?  Do you celebrate Groundhog Day?  If so, what do you do?

After reading so many great ideas at Enchanted Homeschooling Mom yesterday I reserved about 6 books at the library and look forward to reading books w/ my 4 and 2 yr old to explain the day to them. :) Thanks for sharing!
