Inside: Looking for some fun preschool Groundhog Day activities? Here are over 15 different fun ideas to try!
It’s almost February, and we are planning some simple preschool Groundhog Day activities.
On February 2 of each year, we wonder if Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow. If Phil does not see his shadow, the legend is that spring will come early.
There are even some cooking activities that work well for this day.
I collected over 15 different simple Groundhog Day activities for preschoolers that can work in the classroom or at home. Some are geared for older children, but can be easily adapted for this age group.
